Senators Harkin and Dole to headline ADA 30th anniversary virtual rally

July 26 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

The Harkin Institute for Public Policy & Citizen Engagement is joining the Dole Institute of Politics, Edward M. Kennedy Institute for the U.S. Senate, George Bush Presidential Library & Museum and George W. Bush Presidential Library & Museum to host a virtual rally commemorating the 30th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act on July 26, 2020.

Hosting the rally virtually on Twitter and Instagram will not only allow participants to socially distance but also increase accessibility for people who might face physical barriers to attending an in-person event. Renowned disability rights activists, including Senator Tom Harkin (retired), Senator Bob Dole (retired), Judy Heumann and Claudia Gordon will speak at the event.

The landmark Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was known as the Emancipation Proclamation for people with disabilities at the time it was signed into law by President George H.W. Bush on July 26, 1990.

Register for the rally now to receive updates in the coming weeks. For more information about the rally and the 30th anniversary of the ADA visit The Harkin Institute’s website or contact Emily Schettler,, 515-205-6319.
