Graphic: The Disability Rights and Independent Living Movement

American Coalition of Citizens with Disabilities (ACCD)

A coalition of national, state, and local disability organizations active from 1975 to 1983, ACCD brought a cross-disability perspective to the movement and took a leading role in the national effort to force implementation of section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and passage of the Education of all Handicapped Children Act of 1975. Oral histories with several founders and leaders in ACCD are in the DRILM collection.
