Webinar's Description

  • Did you know that the President appoints members of the Supreme Court, which decides important cases related to the disability community? (Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg wrote a critical decision called Olmstead, which held that people with disabilities have a right to receive state funded supports and services in the community rather than institutions.)
  • Did you know that the Congress is responsible for providing 40% of funding for special education but they never get close to that amount?
  • Did you know that the state legislature decides how much will be spent on services funded by regional centers?
  • Did you know that your Mayor and City Council Members are responsible for ensuring that sidewalks are accessible to wheelchairs?

Whom we elect is critical for our future!
 
Join amazing experts who will break it all down for you, including:

  • Alison Barkoff, Director of Advocacy, Center for Public Representation
  • Eric Harris, Legislative Advocate, Disability Rights California
  • Geoffrey Stranierie, City of Los Angeles, ADA Compliance Officer
  • Additional presenters to be added.
