july tc
In the last several weeks we've seen a spike in outreach to the TAA encompassing stories related to workplace, housing and corporate discrimination. This is not something our community is unfamiliar with, but the national spotlight on similar topics reminds us that we must equip ourselves with knowledge. It is important to understand your rights and when they are being violated. Later this month is the 30th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). This landmark civil rights law extended the right for our community, and many others, to access public places, businesses, and to participate in the same everyday activities as other citizens. In celebration, there is a free webinar on July 29 highlighting workplace accommodations and disability rights which we hope you will attend.
pride
The Tourette Syndrome and Tic Disorder community is diverse and inclusive. In honor of PRIDE month, the Tourette Association of America wants to shine a light upon the experiences of those from our LGBTQ community. Your impactful stories portray a life of struggle, success and love. It’s proof that the Tourette Syndrome and LGBTQ communities aren’t mutually exclusive. You have much to be proud about and now is your opportunity to have others hear your story. There are no limits to who you are and who you love.
Today not only kicks off Tourette Syndrome Awareness Month, it is also the first day of our Virtual Conference 2020. There has never been a more important time to make the TAA your charity of choice. We have all experienced many changes over the last several weeks and now, more than ever, we need to come together to ensure the future of the only national organization dedicated to serving the Tourette Syndrome and Tic Disorder community.
