NIH To Celebrate Disability Pride Month
Join EDI in celebrating Disability Pride Month, which commemorates the passing of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The ADA is a human rights law that prohibits discrimination against people with disabilities. Passing the ADA on July 26, 1990, was a landmark event in the fight for disability rights.
To celebrate the anniversary, NIH will host a virtual lecture, “Reimagining Disability for the 21st Century: From Ableism to Innovation” by Dr. Jonathan Kaufman, on Tuesday, July 26 from noon to 1 p.m. ET. Kaufman is a consultant, psychotherapist and Forbes columnist who previously worked as a White House policy advisor on diversity and disability.
