During the week of June 20, 2016, the National Advocacy Program staff—Lee Page, Susan Prokop, and Heather Ansley—attended the National ADA Symposium in Denver, CO.  The symposium provides attendees from around the nation with an opportunity to learn about the latest developments in the ADA.  Sessions focused on issues such as access to stadiums, employment, outdoor recreation, service animals, and voting.  The event provides an opportunity to network with disability community advocates from all over the United States. 

The symposium kicked off with John Register, Associate Director for Community and Veterans Programs for the U.S. Paralympics.  Following the opening session, participants had the opportunity to attend 8 of over 70 breakout sessions over a three day period.  Information shared at these sessions included updates from key officials in charge of enforcing the ADA.  At the session presented by the Department of Justice, officials noted that for the first time the Department has no backlog of ADA complaints due in part to the initiation of an online complaint process.

Next year’s symposium will be held in Chicago May 14-17th. More information is available at:
