From the Desk of the Executive Director


We have reached the end of another year so this writer will be taking a holiday hiatus. This will be the last Weekly Update for 2017. We will be back with you on Monday, January 8, 2018 to kick off the new year.

2017 DPC Annual Reception & Award Ceremony

On Thursday evening, October 12, 2017 more than 100 people gathered for the DPC Award Ceremony and Annual Event at the Non-Profit Center in Boston. Wow! What a magical evening it was. We honored the work of three incredible disability rights advocates: Christine Griffin, Jim Kruidenier and Heather Watkins. Each of the honorees has contributed to our struggle for equality in their own way.

Many sponsors made this event possible. We want to thank our our leading sponsors Commonwealth Care Alliance, Partners Health Care/Spaulding Rehabilitation, Association for Behavioral Healthcare, Health Management Associates and Boston Center for Independent Living.

In addition to highlighting some of our finest leaders, the event raised more than $37,000 for DPC's advocacy efforts. We offer our sincere thanks to our honorees for allowing us to share their great work and all those who joined us on this special night.

DPC. About Us. By Us.
