The Americans with Disabilities Act, signed by President Bush on July 26, 1990, was intended to ensure equal opportunity, full participation, independent living and economic self-sufficiency for individuals with disabilities. From Judith Heumann’s days as a camp counselor at Camp Jened to her days of leadership in the 504 Sit-in, her work has served as an impetus for action and change.

Join Judith Heumann in a conversation with Wesley Hamilton about life before the passage of the ADA, the impact of the ADA over the past thirty years, current disability rights issues and what the future holds for the ADA and disability rights.
