Conversations with the ADA Generation
Twenty-five years after he secured passage of the ADA, Senator Tom Harkin sat down with 11 millennials— students at Drake University who are part of the ADA Generation. Some have a disability; some do not. But all draw on their unique perspectives as they consider the next 25 years and what may—and should—lie ahead for persons with disabilities in 2040.
What do you think?
There are millions of members of the ADA Generation. Help us tap into their wealth of experiences and ideas by launching a worldwide conversation at #ADA30. Together we can do more to ensure people with disabilities in 2040 have equal access and opportunities in their workplaces and in their communities. But we need your voice.
