Dear Friends,

The AUCD For All Gala: Celebrating Leadership in Civil Rights was a great success with close to 300 people joining AUCD and its network to highlight the importance of advancing civil rights and social justice for children and adults with disabilities. We are grateful to the evening’s Honorees for their dedication in championing the rights of everyone to realize a life of fulfillment and meaning.

Thank you to everyone who attended and generously donated to the event. Together, we raised close to $100,000 to support AUCD’s efforts to enhance policy advocacy and communications around issues that are important to people with disabilities and their families. If you were not able to attend or contribute, you can still donate online to support this important work. 

Now in its 4th year, the AUCD Gala continues to gain momentum as we highlight important leaders, the great work of our network, and the issues that impact people with disabilities and their families. Thank you for being a partner and friend in these efforts, and we look forward to continuing this work together.

With Warmest Regards,

Andy Imparato
Executive Director
