With the retirements of longstanding champions Senator Tom Harkin and Congressman George Miller, the disability community has an opportunity to cultivate new Congressional leaders to advance a compelling new policy agenda for children and adults with disabilities. The recent bipartisan Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (co-authored by Senator Lamar Alexander) and the ABLE Act include elements that will be building blocks for future policy. Join us as Andy Imparato gives an insider’s perspective on the opportunities and challenges our country faces as we seek to realize the goals of the Americans with Disabilities Act almost 25 years after its passage.
