button, Vote American Coalition of Citizens with Disabilities

Description (Brief):

Pin-back buttons serve many purposes. They are efficient advertising vehicles, handy for fund-raising in support of a cause, concise statements of a person’s beliefs, a form of educational outreach, and convenient ice-breakers for conversation. NMAH has several hundred pin-back buttons related to disability, including this one. ACCD stands for the American Coalition of Citizens with Disabilities which existed from 1974-1983.
