One of the most important aspects of the disability rights movement was the focus on independent living, which emerged in California in the&nbsp;1960s.&nbsp;Five decades later, people with disabilities are still on the front lines, often getting arrested in Washington DC . What gains have they made and what are they still fighting for? &nbsp;That’s on the next Your Call with Rose Aguilar and You.</span></p> Tue, 24 Dec 2013 08:00:00 +0000 Ali Budner 37482 at http://kalw.org Today on Your Call: What’s the history of the disability rights movement?

I’m here to see the Bay Area Association of Disabled Sailors (BAADS) in action. It’s a 25-year-old organization that operates on an annual budget of under $50,000. At the end of a dock, I meet three sailors in electric wheelchairs.</p><p> Thu, 05 Sep 2013 23:47:47 +0000 Daniel Moore 32654 at http://kalw.org Sailors with disabilites race on the Bay Today on Your Call: What's the history of California’s disability rights movement? http://kalw.org/post/today-your-call-whats-history-california-s-disability-rights-movement <P></P> <P></P> <P> Wed, 24 Jul 2013 07:00:00 +0000 Ali Budner 30564 at http://kalw.org Today on Your Call: What's the history of California’s disability rights movement?
