REGISTRATION IS CLOSED; This session is full.

Presented by the Mid-Atlantic ADA Center, a project of TransCen, Inc. 

The 1960s Civil Rights Movement had significant impact on politics and culture in the United States, and laid the groundwork for other sociopolitical movements. This webinar will feature disability rights activist and author Judy Heumann, together with a speaker on the history of civil rights. They will discuss the ways that the Civil Rights Movement impacted and influenced the Disability Rights Movement that began in the 1970s. They also will offer their thoughts on how both movements have led to current conversations around the intersectionality of race and disability.
