CORPUS CHRISTI -
In 2010, around 1 in 5 people in the United States were living with some sort of disability, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. This counts for around 19% of the population.
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), which became law in 1990, prohibits the discrimination against those living with a disability in all areas of public life including jobs, schools and transportation.
Wednesday, a local non-profit that helps those living with disabilities locally will hold a celebration for the 27 anniversary of the ADA.
The Coastal Bend Center for Independent Living (CBCIL) will hold an interactive movie party at Alamo Drafthouse.
The multiple award-winning film Forrest Gump will be featured for this dinner and a movie type event.
All donations raised will support the CBCIL in their mission to be sure those with disabilities can lead a fulfilling life.
The party starts at 6:30 p.m. at Alamo Drafthouse, located at 7601 S. Staples.
