You're about to watch a funny and poignant interview with two men who reflect the theme of this year's Disability Pride Month: We Want a Life Like Yours.

The question we ask is if we don't include, what do we lose?

Too much for too long became the obvious answer and on July 26, 1990, the Americans with Disabilities Act was born. Soon so was the Disability Pride Flag.

When you see it, know that you're a part of something bigger than all of us. You're living in a country that's growing to realize that all communities have dreams of living a life like anyone else. You'll see it in the video with nationally acclaimed comedian Josh Blue and an integral member of our community, Matt Higgins.

You'll also witness it throughout our organization, notably in our Employment Works program that includes the Kelly Smith Employment Center. One woman said she wanted to work, and she inspired what will be our 40th year of Wine in the Pines to help improve the unacceptable 88% rate of unemployment for youth and adults with disabilities in Colorado.

Learn more and attend that legendary event by going to www.WineinthePines.org, or simply enjoy a summer month with your eyes wide open to all the possibilities around you.

We're not saying we're passionate about our work, but we've heard that someone will be here until the building falls down around her.

But don't take our word for it. Check out Maeva, Jennifer and Sandra's stories in the short video, and set forth on a career path of growth and fulfillment at www.ACCOcareers.org.

Dear Boulder and Longmont Community,  

We would like to inform you that as of July 3rd, 2024, Ability Connection Colorado’s Faith in Action Program will no longer be offering transportation information/resources. We came to this decision due to a growing number of other available resources in the area. For over 26 years Faith in Action, through Janet Davies, our Lead Project Coordinator, offered medical transportation information/resources for individuals with disabilities and other life challenges. Ability Connection Colorado is very grateful for the work and dedication of Janet Davies. 

We are also grateful for the Boulder and Longmont community for their support of Faith in Action over the years. 

As we like to say, Please stay safe, healthy and connected, 

Judith I. Ham
