Blind people have longstanding legal rights to access government programs, education, employment, public accommodations and other aspects of social life. The enforcement of these rights in an increasingly technology-dependent world requires that doctors, advocates, educators, administrators and disabled persons learn how the ADA applies in the wake of the Internet and accessible information technology. Timothy Elder, an experienced disability rights litigator, explains recent changes in disability law and how to think about the rights of blind persons in a brave new digital world. A recording of the presentation can be obtained from the FFB website.
Founded by Timothy Elder, TRE Legal Practice is a civil rights law firm fighting discrimination and specializing in the rights of the blind and other disabled people to access employment, education, government programs, public accommodations, accessible technology and all other aspects of society.
