#ThisIsAmerica

The Seen and Unseen Realities for People with Disabilities


Thursday, November 18, 2021 | 6:00 p.m. - 7:30 p.m. ET

Zoom Webinar

Disabilities don’t discriminate. A disability does not care about your age, gender, race, or social status. Disabilities can be physical or mental impairments, or both.

The Americans with Disabilities Act passed more than 30 years ago. How has America grown since then? What have been the positive and negative impacts on the lives of people with disabilities? Join us for an in-depth discussion on how the disability rights movement is seeking to secure equal opportunities and equal rights for all people with disabilities.

Please RSVP by Thursday, November 18, 2021.
