MassADAPT started in 2013 as a Massachusetts-based chapter of ADAPT, a national grassroots disability rights group in the United States of America. ADAPT has been engaging in direct action and civil disobedience for disability rights for over 35 years.
ADAPT members also worked politically by drafting the Americans With Disabilities Act, building public support for it through political action and civil disobedience, guiding it to passage in Congress in 1990.
Our Massachusetts-based ADAPT chapter started when a group of Boston Center for Independent Living (BCIL) staff and members joined ADAPT's national action in Washington, DC, in April 2013.
