On Tuesday July 21, the Vera Institute of Justice will be hosting a summit to explore access to justice for people with disabilities. With America in the midst of substantial criminal justice reform and celebrating the 25th Anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), this summit will bring these two issues together. Leaders from both the disability and criminal justice fields will explore the impact the ADA has had on people with disabilities with disabilities who have had involvement with the justice system, either as victims or suspects/offenders. Panelists will also share their visions for justice for people with disabilities for the next 25. The summit will take place in Washington, DC and will be held in room G11 of the Dirksen Senate Office Building from 2:00 – 4:00 PM.
