An Interfaith Reflection on the ADA: 30 Years Later

July 13, 2020

Wednesday, July 22nd, 12 pm – 1 pm EST

Dear Friends of Disability Justice,

Below is an announcement for IDAC’s July 22 commemoration of the 30th anniversary of the ADA.  I hope you will agree that we have been blessed with a panel team rich in experience and wisdom!  We will enjoy reflections on the victory of the ADA’s passages, considerations of the successes and continued challenges of implementing the ADA in faith communities, and then we will draw our attention to intersectionality, culture, and the shared work that remains before us.

I have also attached a graphic you can use for posting on social media (the registration link is below).  Please share far and wide with your networks, congregations and communities, family and friends.

As always, thank you for your work for disability justice, wherever you serve!  Together we move toward a more just society.

God bless,

Rev. Michelle M. Beadle
UMC General Board of Church and Society
