Come walk for disability rights on the Navajo Nation as part of the Nihíshá Campaign (What About Us?) Disability Awareness Walk this October 15, 2019.
The walk will begin at the Chevron Station across the Flea Market to the Navajo Nation Chambers in Window Rock.
All ages are invited to this event. A Public Address System will be available in front of the Council Chambers for people with disabilities, family members and service providers to express their disability-related concerns. The Navajo Nation Council will be in their 2019 Fall Session that same day.
The Navajo Nation Advisory Council on Disabilities (NNACOD), Native American Disability Law Center (NADLC), and Navajo Nation Office of Special Education and Rehabilitation Services (OSERS) are hosting the Disability Walk to raise awareness of issues and needs that are being adversely experienced by Navajos with disabilities, including the continued lack of access to public buildings, public transportation, voting rights, employment opportunities, health care, disability housing, etc.
We hope to see you at the Walk and want to hear your story! The Navajo Nation Government needs to hear how important these issues are to Navajos with disabilities and to begin to address such Disability Rights per existing Navajo Legislative mandates.
