AG Holder Comments on ADA "Revolution"
Attorney General Eric Holder spoke yesterday at the American Association of People with Disabilities “Justice for All” Event. He quoted past Attorney General Thornburgh, the AG when the ADA became law, noting the legislation has been “another emancipation, [recognizing] the right of people with disabilities to come into mainstream society – to come into the restaurant or the concert hall or house of worship or movie theater…or the workplace, and, above all, to long-term prospects for a future life of hope and achievement.” To read the full text of the speech, visit: http://www.justice.gov/ag/speeches/2010/ag-speech-100721.html
