Latest edition: Ableism Out, Independent Living Now!

Episode Details

Original tape date: August 23, 2018.

First aired: August 31, 2018.

On July 26th, America marked the 28th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Thousands of disability activists, including many of those who made this civil rights landmark a reality, convened at the National Council on Independent Living’s (NCIL) 2018 Annual Conference. ​Celebrating ​#ADA28 alongside disability activists​ allows us to revisit the story of how disability came to be a civil right, even as it was pathologized and co-opted into ableist narratives. How can we make this not a conversation about ability, but accessibility, one that is intersectional and empowering?

This special report is a collaboration with the National Council, with the help of our generous sponsors and donors.
