Peace Jam with Elaine Kolb

Elaine Kolb, now almost 75, has been a cultural worker for over 50 years. A poet, songwriter, activist and performer, her issues include Peace with Justice, Disability Rights, and LGBTQIA, to name a few. Literally stabbed in the back at age 28, Elaine is partially paralyzed with a spinal cord injury and was active in demonstrating and organizing to get the Americans with Disabilities Act passed. She uses humor, music, poetry, & personal stories to touch & open hearts, minds, & souls and is planning a community celebration in July to mark the 34th Anniversary of the passage of the ADA. She has lived in John Prete Senior Housing since 1992.
