WHERE:
Unitarian Universalist Center, 1187 Franklin Street, San Francisco

WHY: To promote social movement in the lives of people with disabilities and to recognize that everyone can dance.

HOW: By dancing and supporting one another.

Leading off the dance will be AXIS Dance Company who will teach us new ways of thinking about movement. Afterwards everyone dances.

The dance theme is "Every One Can Dance".

We invite your coverage of the event. This is an ideal opportunity to meet with people - many of whom are directly affected by the State of California's ten percent budget cuts to their monthly income.

On this 19th Anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act, we encourage people with and without disabilities to reflect upon the rights and obligations of this Act.
