Blogging the ADA Restoration Act … with Passion
If you have been thinking about making a blog or an ASL vlog on the ADA Restoration Act, another blogger has written a post that might help serve as an inspiration for you:
The ADA Restoration Act of 2007 Ian Johnson’s Neurodiversity blog Oct 24 ’07. Ian Johnson offers one of the more thoughtful, analytical, yet passionate blog posts I have seen on just where the courts have gone wrong in interpreting the ADA. I recommend reading this one, even if you already know the basics.
Also see the long list of blog posts by other bloggers by clicking on “On the ADA Restoration Act” from the top navigation bar. (Alas, there are no ASL vlogs yet that I know of. YOURS could be the first!)
Another recent blog post that I missed in my last update:
New Movie Reminds us to be activists Oct 22 ’07, “I’m an MS Activist” uses a recent movie about a disabled veteran activist to frame her argument for the ADA Restoration Act. She links to an on-line mailer that you can use to contact your senator–but, personally, I would suggest that a better tool is the one at UnderRepresented.
If you’re interested in how the courts have violated the spirit of the ADA, then you may want to explore my growing collection of stories about individual ADA court cases.
CCD has compiled an excellent collection of materials on the ADA and on the ADA Restoration Act of 2007, so it’s well worth following their link to www.c-c-d.org/ada.
See my continually-updated list of blog entries from all over the web about the ADA Restoration Act of 2007, from July 26 2007 through TODAY, always available from the top navigation bar at “On the ADA Restoration Act.”
Also, don’t miss these links: One group of activists has posted a short list of simple ideas of things you can do to help get the Restoration Act passed. And do check out the ADA Restoration Blog for on-going updates. Or browse through background information on the ADA Restoration Act. Or contact your legislators. Or see some sample
letters to legislators.
