Virtual Event On Disability History at UW To Celebrate the 30th Year Anniversary of the ADA

The Public History Project, McBurney Disability Resource Center, ADA30 Student Coalition, and the Associated Students of Madison are partnering to co-host a virtual event to celebrate the 30th year anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act.
