TASH is celebrating those who have made history in the disability field, and who have worked tirelessly in the legal field for equity, opportunity, and inclusion for people with disabilities. TASH is pleased to announce the fourth annual Outstanding Leadership in Disability Law Virtual Symposium and Award Celebration, on Wednesday, October 7, 2020. This year, owing to COVID-19 social distancing requirements, we have decided to move our in-person event to a virtual platform. A half-day legal symposium will explore Inclusion as a Human and Civil Right: Past, Present, and Future Legal and Advocacy Implications, followed by a celebration honoring Judith Gran for her exceptional leadership in disability law.
In conjunction with 30th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), legal practitioners and advocates will discuss the impact of segregation, low expectations, denial of access, and criminalization on students with disabilities, with emphasis on issues negatively impacting students of color with disabilities, as well as the understanding the constitutional foundation of right to education for students with disabilities and the strong values of equal protection, due process, zero reject, and inclusion that are embedded in IDEA and ADA.
