VIDEO Thank you, Huntsville, for Shining a Light on Community Living in 2021

Jennifer Jerrett, community engagement specialist for Community Living Huntsville, shares a huge ‘thank you’ for the Downtown Huntsvill BIA, Huntsville Festival of the Arts, Town of Huntsville and project partner Rolston Home Building Centre for helping to Shine a Light on Community Living for Community Living Month’s Blue and Green Day on May 6, 2021.

Fifteen downtown merchants lit their storefronts with blue and green lightbulbs, donated by Rolston Home Building Centre, to make downtown Huntsville glow with signature Community Living colours. Huntsville’s Civic Square beside town hall and in front of the Algonquin Theatre, were awash in the colours, too, as was Community Living Huntsville’s office at 99 West Rd.

Thank you to everyone who helped mark the occasion.

The annual campaign celebrates the accomplishments of the Community Living movement in promoting and achieving inclusion for people with developmental disabilities, and advocating alongside them for their right to live the lives they choose in their communities.

And also calls attention to the work still yet to be done.
