On Tuesday July 21st, the George & Barbara Bush Foundation will convene key activists, advocates and policymakers who helped make the Americans with Disabilities Act a reality for a bipartisan celebration of that landmark civil rights legislation – and, equally important, focus on the challenges that will shape the future of the disability movement. Dole Institute of Politics Associate Director and Director of Museum and Archives Audrey Coleman will be among the guests for the discussion.

The 90-minute online program, titled “Let the Shameful Wall of Exclusion Come Down,” taken from President Bush’s remarks on July 26, 1990 as he signed the ADA, starts on July 21st at 12:30 pm Central and will be moderated by Judy Woodruff, the managing editor and anchor of PBS’ NewsHour.
