This year marks the 23rd anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). While generations of people with disabilities who were old enough to know what this country was like before the passage of the ADA, a whole new generation of people born Post-ADA can’t help but wonder if the civil rights law has made much of an impact or difference in their lives and the lives of other young people with disabilities across the country.

Join us for this cross generational discussion about the impact of the ADA then and now. You’ll hear from an ADA pioneer and civil rights advocate who has been involved in the disability rights movement since its inception. Plus, you’ll learn firsthand about the experiences of two young professionals with disabilities, Quemuel "Q" Arroyo, employee (Morgan Stanley), Alexandra McArthur, employee (Taproot Foundation), who were just infants when the landmark legislation was signed into law and the impact (or lack) it has had in their lives.

SPEAKER: James Weisman, SVP & General Counsel - United Spinal Association
