Speaking as the Awards Committee Chairman, of the North American Coalition of Human Rights Committees, Roy Bercaw presents a Certificate of Appreciation to the City of Cambridge. It recognizes the City for "Prohibiting White Racism; for Encouraging black racism; and for Denying to Persons with Disabilities Access to City Programs and to Government Services." Bercaw wonders why the City received an award as the most walkable city in view of the many broken brick sidewalks that are dangerous for city employees, women who walk their babies in strollers and for persons with disabilities.
Bercaw asks of the Civic Unity Committee "Will persons with disabilities will be allowed to participate this year? And what about white heterosexual males, will they be allowed to participate?" he asked.
