Episode 22: Disability Law Is Broken

Disability law and policy is too often pushed to the edges of the legal field, left to folks from the disability community to both advocate for and navigate. But we know that these issues impact every aspect of our legal system and our collective daily lives. According to the Center for Disease Control, one in four adults has a disability in this country. How do we reform disability law so it actually achieves disability justice? Lindsay Langholz talks with Marissa Ditkowsky about the patchwork of laws that are too often treated as a ceiling instead of the floor when it comes to accessibility, and how we all can help fix disability law.

Episode Host: Lindsay Langholz, ACS Director of Policy and Program

Episode Guest: Marissa Ditkowsky, Diversity Chair, ACS District of Columbia Lawyer Chapter, and Tzedek DC’s 2019-2021 Gallogly Family Foundation Fellow
