Symposium on Disability Rights

This is a past event.

The quest for improving the rights of people with disabilities locally, nationally, and internationally is urgent and significant. Addressing the needs of the disability community through the removal of social, economic, and environmental barriers that limit accessibility to basic services and prevent persons with disabilities from participating fully in their communities, getting a quality education, achieving employment, and having their voices heard is at the center of a human rights approach to disability.

The Symposium on Disability Rights will take place at the Hilton Birmingham at UAB.
