The Federal Communications Commission will host a panel event to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) on July 23, 2015 from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. The event, presented by the agency’s Consumer and Governmental Affairs Bureau, will also recognize the 5th anniversary of the Twenty-first Century Communications and Video Accessibility Act of 2010 (CVAA), which will be occurring in October of this year.
The FCC’s ADA Event will consist of a panel of consumers representing various disability organizations, who will share stories about how advances in communication access have made a difference in their personal and professional lives, as well as the lives of their family, friends, and colleagues. After the panel we will celebrate the ADA’s birthday with light refreshments. This public event will take place at the FCC’s headquarters, Room TW-C305 (Commission Meeting Room), 445 12th Street, S.W., Washington, DC 20554.
