Governor Robert Docking proclamation

Governor Robert Docking proclamation
Creator: Docking, Robert Blackwell, 1925-1983
Date: April 5, 1974
Governor Robert B. Docking of Topeka, Kansas, issued this proclamation declaring April, 1974, the Legal Rights for Retarded Citizens Month. The proclamation affirms the legal rights of retarded persons to be the same as of other human beings, and outlines the manner in which such rights may be restricted, if necessary. Requests from the President's Committee on Mental Retardation of Washington, D.C. and Rainbows United, Inc. of Wichita, Kansas, prompted the proclamation. The disability rights movement became increasingly more visible in the 1970s as an extension of the civil rights movement of the 1960s. By 1990, the Americans with Disabilities Act sought to extend to disabled persons the same legal protections against discrimination available to other minorities under the 1964 Civil Rights Act.
