Event to celebrate anniversary of ADA with free food, activities and vaccination clinic

The Self Advocate Coalition of Kansas will celebrate the 31st anniversary of the Americans With Disabilities Act Saturday at Holcom Park.

The event, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at 2700 W. 27th St., is open to the public and will feature free face painting, food, games and a photo booth. A DJ will also be on hand, and information about the ADA will be available.

Additionally, the event will have a vaccination clinic, courtesy of Lawrence-Douglas County Public Health. The first 25 people to get vaccinated will receive a $20 gift card, according to a flyer for the event. Those who’ve already been vaccinated can bring their vaccination card for a prize, while supplies last.

The mission of the Self Advocate Coalition of Kansas is to promote empowerment and independence for adults with developmental disabilities.

The event is also sponsored by The Arc of Douglas County, the Kansas Leadership Center and the University of Kansas’ Life Span Institute.
