ADA30 - Celebrate. Learn. Share.  The ground-breaking civil rights law, the Americans with Disabilities Act, turns thirty in 2020.  What better way to celebrate than a conversation with the chief sponsor of the ADA bill in the House of Representatives, the Honorable Tony Coelho.

He currently serves as Chairman of the Epilepsy Foundation.

Eve Hill, one of the nation’s foremost disability rights attorneys will chat with Mr. Coelho about the passage of the ADA, how the ADA has transformed the lives of people with disabilities, and a look toward the future of disability rights.
