The nationally touring Disability Rights Museum on Wheels (DRMW), will be on Chicago’s lakefront Museum Campus east of the Field Museum. This 48-foot interactive traveling museum tells the story of the fight for equal rights by people with disabilities in the United States, curated by the producers of the nationally recognized documentary Lives Worth Living. The DRMW, which raises awareness of the 25th Anniversary of the ADA, is sponsored by the USBLN, the national organization promoting including people with disabilities in the workplace, supply chain, and market place. The DRMW’s tour stop in Chicago will be accompanied by Paralympic and adaptive sport demonstrations with an opportunity for anyone to try their hand at basketball, tennis, and softball in a sports chair, plus hand cycling and golf sponsored and presented by the Chicago Park District and the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago.
