Thursday, September 13th 6-8PM persons with disabilities and their families are invited to attend a FREE workshop “Know Your Disability Rights.” People with disabilities are often mistreated and silenced. Often they are not even aware that their rights have been violated because they don’t know what their rights are. At the workshop, Potter Handy, LLP attorneys will inform you of your disability rights on the accessible environment, housing, reasonable accommodations and other disability rights.
It will be a combination of oral presentation and video—will discuss the historical development of the Americans with Disabilities Act as a segue into the current state of the law regarding disability civil rights and access. They will discuss common violations of the law as well as enforcement of those rights. Attorneys will discuss the political landscape regarding the ADA and the California Civil Code protections. And there will be a question and answer session about the ADA, Fair Housing and Employment.
Potter Handy, LLP makes an enormous impact on disability access law in California. The Center for Disability Access (CDA — a division of Potter Handy, LLP) has represented hundreds of persons with disabilities who have been discriminated against on the basis of their disability.
Please RSVP to submit your question to be incorporated into the presentation and/or reserve your seat. Contact Lake Kowell 707-636-3063, Lake@myDSLC.org
