Carol Glazer, President of the National Organization on Disability, joins Mike to discuss the landmark legislation.
“Before the ADA there were no curb cuts and people who had mental health or what was then called ‘mental retardation’ would be sent away to institutions. People with disabilities weren’t seen. They were out of sight, out of mind. One of the things the ADA did is, it brought people with disabilities into public life,” Carol explains.
