ADA30: Looking Back, Moving Forward
This year marks the 30th anniversary of the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA), the landmark legislation mandating baseline levels of access for the millions of Americans living with disabilities. Its passage culminated decades of passionate disability rights and disability justice advocacy. The ADA continues to inspire emerging leaders today.
The ADA achieved much, but it could not and did not realize total inclusion. Thirty years of technological progress coincided with an expanding litany of cultural, legal, and technical challenges to access for all.
Please join the ACS American Law Student Chapter, the Program on Law and Government, The Disability Rights Clinic, the Disability Law Association, the Student Bar Association and Verizon for a discussion looking back on what the ADA and its champions achieved, and the challenges that loom ahead.
