The George Bush Presidential Library and Museum is hosting a panel discussion to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act. The discussion will be held November 5, at the Annenberg Presidential Conference Center on the Texas A&M University campus. The panelists for this discussion include Lex Frieden, Boyden Gray, and Larisa DeSantis.
The Americans with Disabilities Act was passed by President George Bush in 1990 to “end to the unjustified segregation and exclusion of persons with disabilities from the mainstream of American life.” It was his hope that this act would become a model for the choices and opportunities of future generations.
Before the Americans with Disabilities Act was passed, being disabled often meant being unable to function easily in jobs – workplaces weren’t properly outfitted and even simple adjustments weren’t made to make working for these individuals.
The panel discussion will begin at 7pm and will be captioned and signed for the hearing impaired. Guests in need of any necessary accommodations can call (979) 691-4068 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
