Celebrate ADA Day with us- flash mob style 

Based on the huge success of last year's ADA Day Cleveland celebration, the Cuyahoga County Board of DD is once again organizing a flash mob- an inclusive dance routine that will take place prior to the WOW concert on Wednesday, July 25 from 5:00-6:15 PM. This is a part of Wade Oval Wednesday in University Circle. Everyone is invited to participate. No dance experience is needed. Come show the community just how "unstoppable" we are! Call (216) 736-2722 for more info.

Inclusion Challenge Week begins July 22

Inclusion begins with YOU! The Cuyahoga County Board of DD believes that everyone has a role in building a more inclusive community – one that values the talents and contributions of all people and promotes equal opportunity. As the Greater Cleveland community prepares to celebrate the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) on July 25, you are encouraged to participate in Inclusion Challenge Week, beginning on July 22, by completing these daily challenges:

Sunday, July 22Take a moment to introduce yourself to an unfamiliar neighbor, co-worker or community member and invite them to join in the fun and “take the challenge.”


Monday, July 23Drive positive change in your workplace/organization. Encourage your business/organization to hire someone with a disability. People with disabilities can work and want to work.


Tuesday, July 24Spread the word – Inclusion begins with YOU! Have a conversation with coworkers, friends and family members about the ways they can support inclusion.


Wednesday, July 25Celebrate ADA Day at Wade Oval Wednesday by participating in the “unstoppable” flash mob. Everyone is welcome. Call (216) 736-2722.


Thursday, July 26Find a common bond. Set your phone aside and converse with a stranger or learn something new about a person you already know.


Friday, July 27Volunteer with an organization working for diversity and inclusion. Consider becoming a Community Friend with the Cuyahoga County Board of DD.


Saturday, July 28Take time to learn about a culture different from your own. Visit an art exhibit, museum or other place in the community dedicated to other cultures.
