When the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was signed in July of 1990, it brought a huge number of changes that would improve life significantly for millions of people.

But the fight for accessibility was never just about ramps and closed captioning or equal pay, it was also about human dignity and the right to live free from discrimination.

The July 2, 2020 program, The Disability Rights Movement: 30 Years After the ADA, features three disability rights advocates: Alice Wong, activist and editor of Disability Visibility: First Person Stories from the Twenty-First Century; Judy Heumann, former special advisor for the State Department under the Obama administration; and Britney Wilson, staff attorney for the National Center for Law and Economic Justice.

A transcript of the show is available online.
