Can you share a “before and after” experience; e.g., before the ADA I couldn’t do X or was denied access to Y, and thanks to the ADA I can do Z.

Before the ADA my employer could provide me with accessible materials if they wanted to. After the ADA, my employer is required to provide me with materials in accessible format.

What advances in disability rights would you like to see in the next 30 years?

I would love for governmental bodies to be required to have representatives with disabilities. Our country has a sizable population of people with disabilities, and I think it’s important to require there to be representatives of that population in government.
