Thank you Northeast Arc for this #MLKDay post. Click to learn how the civil rights movement and Dr. King's work helped inspire disability rights advocates.Today on #MLKDay, we honor and celebrate the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. We are also reflecting on the ways in which the civil rights movement and Dr. King's work helped inspire disability rights advocates.

In the late 1970s, nonviolent demonstrations began across the country in favor of Section 504 of The Rehabilitation Act, which prohibited discrimination against people with disabilities from participating in any program or activity receiving federal funds based on incapacity.

The most famous protest occurred in San Francisco in 1977, where activists staged a sit-in. One of the organizers, Kitty Cone, said that protestors drew inspiration from Dr. King and other civil rights pioneers, particularly the Montgomery bus boycott and the Birmingham sit-ins: "At every moment, we felt ourselves the descendants of the civil rights movement of the ’60s. We learned about sit-ins from the civil rights movement, we sang freedom songs to keep up morale, and consciously show the connection between the two movements. We always drew the parallels. About public transportation we said we can’t even get on the back of the bus."

Eventually the Section 504 regulations were signed, helping to pave the way for the Americans With Disabilities Act in 1990.
