Join us on Friday, July 30th from 2:00 – 3:00 p.m. for an event commemorating this important anniversary. Former U.S. Congressman Tony Coelho, author and sponsor of the ADA, will share his thoughts on the Act and Christine Griffin, Deputy Director, Office of Personnel Management, will deliver closing remarks. The webcast will be available online at http://www.dol.gov/dol/media/webcast/live.htm.
The highlight of the event is the induction of Justin Dart, Jr. and Helen Keller into the Department’s Labor Hall of Fame. Dart is widely regarded as the “father of the Americans with Disabilities Act.” Keller’s story as an advocate who was deaf and blind taught the world that every worker has something positive to contribute when they are given an opportunity.
