From Judith Heumann’s days as a camp counselor at Camp Jened to her days of leadership in the 504 Sit-in, her work has served as an impetus for action and change. Join Heumann in a conversation with Wesley Hamilton, a Kansas City father, founder of the philanthropic organization Disabled But Not Really, and a featured subject of Netflix’s “Queer Eye,” about life before the passage of the ADA, the impact of the ADA over the past thirty years, current disability rights issues, and what the future holds for the ADA and disability rights. This program is part of KU’s 30th anniversary celebration of the ADA. For details, visit https://accessibility.ku.edu/judith-heumann-2020.
