"The moral test of government is how that government treats those who are in the dawn of life, the children; those who are in the twilight of life, the elderly; and those who are in the shadows of life, the sick, the needy and the handicapped." - Hubert Humphrey
This law workshop invites participants to complete a series of articles, assignments, podcasts, and TedTalks (typically taking 15-30 minutes), over 3 consecutive days, that include material that can help educate and enlighten on the matter of people with disabilities and the law. The topics seek to expose participants to perspectives on elements of disability history, identity and culture, and to all people of disability's experience as they navigate the world and their intersectionality - being a person with a disability who experiences racism, ableism, workplace discrimination, social exclusion, and lack of access.
Join the Legal Studies Program and IDEAL as we provide crucial conversations and a space for registrants to talk about their own experiences, advocacy, activism, and obstacles people with disabilities face despite the laws that are in place.
