Presentation: Person-first Language and Disability Legislation
Presentation by Disability Rights Ohio. Since the landmark signing of the American with Disabilities Act in 1990, certain rights for people with disabilities have been protected by law. This ensures equal opportunity in everyday life, including employment opportunities, purchasing goods and services and participating in state and local government. Three decades later, the struggle for equality is ongoing. A representative from Disability Rights Ohio will share the latest developments in legislation and its impact on everyday living for people with disabilities. Disability Rights Ohio provides legal advocacy and rights protection to a wide range of people with disabilities.
