Disability Rights in the United States: A History in Three Parts

August 13, 2020

The conversation will take place on the online platform Zoom. A link to join will be sent to registered guests via email the day of the program.
The history of disability rights in the Unites States is as long as the history of the nation itself. Join us to hear about three different eras in disability rights history: pre-Civil War, the early 20th century eugenics movement, and the modern disability rights movement.
