A talk with disability rights icon Judy Heumann: the fight for access and equity

10.29.2019 11:00 am - 12:00 pm


Since her fight as a child to be included in her local school system, Judy Heumann has been a disability rights advocate. Her tireless efforts have resulted in monumental systemic change to global human rights legislation and policies benefiting children and adults with disabilities.

Heumann's decades of international work in the disability rights movement mean that her words will both educate and empower. A question and answer session will follow her talk.

This event is FREE to attend, but registration is required.

CART and ASL services will be provided. Additional translation services are available upon request.

Location: Atlanta Friends Meeting, 701 West Howard Avenue, Decatur, GA 30030
