We Are Oregon – An Intersectional Lens
February 13 at 11:45 am: Being Invisible – Stories of Our Attorneys with Disabilities
Although the Americans with Disabilities Act was passed 28 years ago with the promise of comprehensive protection for people with disabilities in work and public life, national statistics still show that historical barriers persist for individuals with disabilities, leading to low employment rates and salaries. Approximately 6.87% of American Bar Association members self-report as having a disability, in comparison to the national rate of 19%. To close the gap, attorneys must be willing to consider and confront the ways their colleagues have been marginalized, and how we can change things moving forward.
Attend in person or via FacebookLive on the Queen’s Bench Facebook page for “Being Visible – Stories of Our Attorneys with Disabilities” with the wonderful speakers Gabrielle Richards of Martin and Richards and Miranda Summers of Summer Family Law.
