CDPAANYS is excited to announce the next installment of our weekly Fall Consumer Advocacy Workshop Series!
On Tuesday, November 10 at 1:00 PM, please join us for a webinar on Olmstead: What It Is, What It Isn’t.
The U.S. Supreme Court’s 1999 landmark decision in Olmstead v. L.C. (Olmstead) found the unjustified segregation of people with disabilities is a form of unlawful discrimination under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). CDPAANYS is thrilled to welcome experts Sim Goldman, Supervising Attorney at Disability Rights NY, and Britney Wilson, Staff Attorney at the National Center for Economic & Legal Justice, for a lively discussion on what Olmstead is and is not.
CDPAANYS thanks the sponsors of this series for their generous support.
