Friday, July 23, 2010, from 10:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. (Eastern Daylight Time) there will be a live webcast from The Great Hall in the United States Department of Justice’s Robert F. Kennedy Building.
After 20 years, there are still many areas within our society which have barely been impacted by the ADA. Handicapped (or disabled if that is your preferred term) persons must file grievances, complaints, and lawsuits to receive what they are entitled to in accord with the Americans with Disabilities Act — the law makes it necessary for those of us being discriminated against to take some action against the violator! So, why wouldn’t they wait — architectural barriers are still standing because a person who would’ve enjoyed access decided it was not in their nature to complain or become a problem.
I’ll celebrate what has taken place — and, I’ll look forward to much more changing for the better!
Follow this link 15 minutes prior to the scheduled time in-order to view the celebration live. The link will also provide access to the recorded event afterward.
I’d like to hear about your thoughts, feelings or experiences — a comment-button is located at the top of each posting.
Enjoy the weekend! 😎
