DREDF’s Directing Attorney Arlene Mayerson was honored this evening in San Francisco by the American Bar Association. The ABA Commission on Disability Rights presented the Paul G. Hearne Award for Disability Rights to Arlene for her role in the vanguard of the disability rights movement, her brilliant contributions to disability rights law and policy, and for her passion to continue to identify and eliminate barriers to equality for children and adults with disabilities.

We are proud to have Arlene as a leader and friend and mentor, and thankful that as a young lawyer her drive to work in civil rights led her to DREDF and the disability rights movement.
