“Having a Disability Cultural Center (DCC) on campus is a really concrete way of letting students, faculty, staff, employees (and alums) learn about their own disabilities and those of others. For too long, disability has been something to hide and avoid. Georgetown can step proudly into the 21st Century and shine a light on important issues by creating and supporting the DCC.”
Michael Allen is a partner in the civil rights firm of Relman, Dane & Colfax, PLLC, where his practice is principally focused on housing discrimination on the basis of disability, race and national origin. His recent litigation under the Americans with Disabilities Act and Fair Housing Act focuses on remediation of inaccessible rental housing and the right of people with disabilities to live in housing of their choice in the community.
