UJP Activist: UJP Fundraiser to support the Encuentro 5 accessibility project


When: Friday, June 8, 2012, 7:00 pm to 10:00 pm

Where: private home • Newton

UJP House Party Fundraiser

to support the Encuentro5 accessibility project

Admission: $15 and a dish for potluck dinner; entertainment will be provided by
Goal: 40 people contributing $15, 30 people at the event, with fundraising
pitch raise $1000 for E5

Reason:  The disability rights movement started in the 1960s; on a federal
level, the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 provided comprehensive civil
rights protections.   This recognized the necessity of guaranteeing full
enjoyment of human rights and equality for the disabled.  In Massachusetts, new
public and private business construction generally must be accessible to those
in wheelchairs. 
The progressive and left movements, while agreeing in principle, often have
lower cost venues in older buildings that are a challenge to accessibility. 
Encuentro 5, a principal events site for the Boston movement, is not wheelchair
accessible; however, recognizing the importance of including all our sisters and
brothers, E5 has established a committee to raise funds to construct an
accessible entranceway and bathroom. 
Occupy Boston has several offices at E5 and also recognizes the principle of
accessibility.  Many UJP and peace movement events are held at E5. 
Consequently, UJP is joining the campaign to raise funds for the E5
accessibility project which will not only create access but serve as an
inspiring example of progressive organizations working together to achieve a
greater good.
