Memories from the 10th Anniversary
In 1999 and 2000, the University of San Francisco, Access Video and DREDF conducted a series of interviews with some of the people who were central to the passage of The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA).
In June of 2015 DREDF began an ongoing project to provide audio description and open captions for this historic archival material and make it available to the public.
So far, thirteen videos have been completed.
We hope you’ll find the videos valuable.
