“I enthusiastically support the efforts for a Disability Cultural Center at Georgetown University. I have taught Disability Right courses and have written in this area for almost 20 years. Before joining the faculty at North Carolina Central University School of Law, I worked as an Assistant United States Attorney where I, among other things, enforced the Americans with Disabilities Act. While the country has made great strides with addressing disability rights issues, discrimination due to a citizen’s disability still occurs too often. Some times the discrimination is motivated by animus, but many times due to ignorance. With the intersection of disability with gender, race, class, and other identities, too many citizens are not allowed full access to society. A Disability Cultural Center at Georgetown University is the appropriate place to combat intolerance and ignorance.”
