This poster is by an artist that would rather remain anonymous, but the subject is ADAPT, one of the most important direct action groups around. Created by and for people with physical disabilities, for over 20 years they have employed nonviolent civil disobedience to change policies that exclude people with disabilities from society. They have helped thousands of people with disabilities leave institutions and live autonomously back in their communities.

Printed at the worker-owned Stumptown Printers, Portland, OR.

This is #35 in the Celebrate People’s History Poster Series.
