Edited by V. Gaylord

The just-released 25th anniversary issue of the publication Impact from the Institute on Community Integration brings together powerful personal stories from individuals with disabilities, their families, and allies to provide a snapshot of how the disability rights movement has touched individual lives over the past 25 years. Impact: Feature Issue on Stories of Advocacy, Stories of Change from People with Disabilities, Their Families and Allies (1988-2013) brings together personal stories published in its pages between 1988-2010, and pairs them with new stories from those same individuals and families that bring readers up-to-date on their lives today. Through these then-and-now stories, plus an interview with the Institute's founding director Bob Bruininks, this Impact recognizes the tenacity, courage, and vision of those working across the U.S. to bring about progress toward full citizenship and community inclusion for people with disabilities.

Published by the Institute on Community Integration and the Research and Training Center on Community Living, University of Minnesota.
