Looking to the Future: The ADA Turns 30

The 3rd University of Maryland (UMD) Disability Summit will take place on Friday, April 5th, 2019 at the Marriott Hotel & Conference Center College Park.

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 UMD Disability Summit is to bring focus to and promote discussion of key current events and research impacting disability in society.

This event is open to the public, all welcome. We are doing our best to ensure that the Marriott can accommodate all access needs, and through registering you can give us details on your specific accommodations.
