Please join us in celebrating the ADA’s 30th anniversary
This year, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) turns 30! The ADA was a crucial civil rights law in 1990 and it remains an essential resource for people with disabilities in securing full rights for participation in society.
We’ve adjusted this year’s program, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Instead of a one-day event in Salem, Ore., we are holding four Lunch & Learn sessions, from noon until 1 p.m., via Zoom.
Here’s the schedule:
Tuesday, July 7
Michael Richardson, Director, NW ADA Center
Tuesday, July 14
Disability Language & Etiquette
Linda Clemon-Karp, Continuing Education Coordinator, NW ADA Center
Tuesday, July 21:
Assistive Technology & Universal Design
Brian Sacre, Access Technologies, Inc.
Tuesday, July 28
Effective Communications & COVID-19: Lessons Learned
Emily Cooper, Legal Director, Disability Rights Oregon
These sessions will be accessible to people with disabilities. Captioning and American Sign Language interpretation will be provided. For questions about accessibility, or to request an accommodation, please contact OregonDisabilities.Commission@dhsoha.state.or.us. Requests should be made at least 48 hours in advance of the meetings.
