Chanting, “Disabled and proud, say it loud,” disabled Central New Yorkers and their supporters were proud today to remember the 24th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act. A group of 100 or more marched the streets of downtown Syracuse just before noontime…much of their focus to change perceptions. Linda Feltus is an employment consultant with Enable-T-L-S…and she’s helped a variety of people succeed in the workplace.
The road has not always been an easy one, as many described, but determination has helped them achieve their goals and dreams. Agnes McCray was the keynote speaker. She flashed back on her own life before the Act.
