In this article, meet two women fighting for the right for people with disabilities — including themselves — to self-determination. In other words, for the right to decide how they will live and the resources needed, instead of these decisions being made by others. While there have been improvements, this fight continues today.

America250 is a multi-year effort to commemorate the semiquincentennial, or 250th anniversary, of the United States. The purpose of the U.S. Semiquincentennial Commission, created by Congress, and the corresponding America250 Foundation, is to catalyze a more perfect union by designing and leading the most comprehensive and inclusive celebration in our country’s history. America250 represents a coalition of public and private partners all working to create initiatives and programs that honor our first 250 years and inspire Americans to imagine our next 250.
