The Disability Rights Revolution

Before the 1970's people with disabilities experienced discrimination and were kept out of schools, parks, jobs, and stores; many were sent away to live in state institutions.

In 1977, led by Kitty Cone who had been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis when she was 15, protestors occupied a federal office building for four weeks, the longest non-violent protest in the history of the US, to demands their civil rights.

Partly as a result of her efforts Congress signed the 504 Americans with Disabilities Act prohibiting discrimination against "otherwise qualified individuals." On March 21, 2015 Cone died, and was the subject of an article in the NY Times series called "Overlooked."
