Pushing Limits

Pushing Limits – “Disability According to DREDF.”

“Disability According to DREDF.”  Founded in 1979, as large numbers of people with disabilities
demanded mainstream access and independence rather than institutions and family ghettos. The Disability Rights Education and Defense Fund has become a major player in the modern disability rights movement.  Through carefully chosen legal actions, strategic work on policy issues and ongoing education, DREDF works to build a more just world.

How does DREDF prioritize its resources?  Is the prevention of disability due to war part of disability work?  How functional is the Americans with Disability Act, after repeated attacks by the right and business community?  Listen in for a stimulating look at the disability movement today as DREDF Executive Director Susan Henderson talks with hosts Leah Gardner and Adrienne Lauby.
