34th Anniversary of the ADA: Member Celebration and Networking

io Theater - 1501 N Kingsbury Street

Join Us In Celebrating the 34th Anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act!

You and a guest are invited to join us for our yearly in person Member Appreciation Party and to celebrate the 34th Anniversary of the ADA.

Each year in July, we honor the anniversary of the passing of the Americans with Disabilities Act by celebrating how far we've come and recognizing the many individuals who fought to pass this groundbreaking legislation. While this is a time for celebration, it's also a moment for reflection and recognition of our continuous fight for disability justice. We hope you'll join us on July 9th as we gather in the community for our ADA Member Celebration! You and a guest are invited to attend in person to celebrate our shared commitment to building a more inclusive Chicago region. Don't miss this casual event to network, build community, and enjoy light appetizers and refreshments with your fellow Disability Lead Members!

A variety of appetizers, beer, wine, and nonalcoholic beverages will be offered. Please include dietary and accommodation requests on your RSVP form. For any accommodations, event and site questions, please contact Clare Killy at ckilly@disabilitylead.org


The event space is accessible including the entrance, bathroom, and reception space. CART will be provided for the speaking portion. Please include accommodation requests on your RSVP form.

COVID-19 Protocols

As COVID-19 continues to impact our communities — and because there will be immunocompromised and medically vulnerable people in attendance — we need your help to create and maintain a safer environment for all. It is our collective responsibility to follow the following guidance and we appreciate your cooperation in advance. Staff will not be able to enforce these protocols so please keep yourself accountable.

For indoor spaces, masks are required for the entire event except when actively eating, drinking, or presenting.

For outdoor spaces, masks are optional.

Guests must be up to date on COVID-19 vaccinations unless medically exempt. If you're medically exempt, please take a COVID-19 antigen test within 24 hours of attending and only attend if your test is negative.

If you have tested positive for COVID-19, are waiting for COVID-19 test results, have COVID-19 symptoms, feel sick or unwell, or have had close contact with a person who has tested positive for COVID-19 or is sick, please do not attend.

Masks, including clear masks, will be available at all Disability Lead-hosted events. N95 masks are preferred. Please note that if we are in shared spaces, including the lobby, the elevator, and bathrooms, we may not be able to control those spaces and masking.

If you test positive for COVID-19 within 4 days following the event, please immediately contact Clare Killy (CKilly@DisabilityLead.org). We will notify all attendees if a case has been reported to us.
