ADAPT Fun Run to Support Activism and Disability Rights

During the past year, we worked diligently with Senate Minority Leader Schumer’s office to improve and reintroduce the Disability Integration Act (S.910). This bi-partisan, bicameral legislation takes up the call of Senator Harkin’s 2013 HELP Committee Report, “Separate but Unequal” to strengthen and clarify the ADA’s integration mandate for people with disabilities.

The EntreprenHer Show Interview With Deborah Davis – The Pushliving Life

Either during or at the end of the interview there will take time for Q and A from the audience as well as inviting others to join in the conversation. Because this is livestreamed, people can join during different times throughout the show.

It is really interesting. Anything goes!

Continuing to use these type of words and descriptions are not helping.
