Fulbright Impact in the Field: Disability Rights, Inclusion, and the International Legacy of the ADA
The Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990 is a U.S. civil rights law that prohibits discrimination against individuals with disabilities in all areas of public life, including employment, education, transportation, and all public and private places available to the public.
In celebration of the ADA’s 30th Anniversary, the Fulbright Program will convene a panel of alumni scholars with disabilities, accessibility and inclusion advocates, and legal experts to explain, reflect on, and envision the future of the ADA’s impact in the United States and around the world. Topics of conversation will include contemporary issues in the disability rights movement, accessibility and inclusion in an international context, and the experiences of scholars abroad.
