Looking Ahead: The ADA Turns 30

The 3rd Biennial University of Maryland Disability Summit will take place on Friday, April 5th, 2019. All panels and presentations will take place in McKeldin Library on the University of Maryland, College Park campus.

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) will turn 30 in 2020. The anniversary of this necessary document, which ensures equitable access to public services by those with disabilities, gives us the chance to look both forward and backward at the ADA’s potential. In the current political climate, there is a deep need to come together as scholars, activists, practitioners, family members, and allies. The goal of the Disability Summit is to bring focus to and promote discussion of key current events and research impacting disability in society. Registration is free. The Summit will be wheelchair accessible and ASL interpretation will be provided.

Call for Presentations is now available! Submit your proposal by February 15, 2019.
