ADA Restoration Act blogging Round-Up Nov 21-26
I somehow missed this one in my last round-up–it’s worth following the link:
Urge your senators to sign on to the ADA Restoration Act Now Nov 18 ’07, the UnderRepresented urges readers to ask their senators to support the ADA Restoration Act and links to several websites where you can find more information. This web site has what is so far the best tool I have seen for helping ordinary citizens like YOU write an email to your senator. You don’t need to know your senators’ names–you only need to know your zip code and state. The tool at the UnderRepresented site will then look up your two senators for you. Then it gives you a form letter that you can re-write into YOUR OWN WORDS. (Letters written in YOUR words are FAR more influential on politicans than form letters.)
Blogging activity on the ADA Restoration Act was pretty quiet during the Thanksgiving break, so the only other link I have to offer is this spirited defense of the ADA Restoration Act and call to action:
Restoration Act Nov 23 ’07 at KatrinaDisability; explains how the courts have misinterpreted the Americans with Disabilities Act of 2007 in a way that harms disabled Americans and how the ADA Restoration Act is meant to help fix this damage.
PLEASE make an ASL vlog (or a written blog, if you like) on the ADA Restoration Act! If you do, I’d be delighted to link to you!
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. If you’re still new to the subject, this can help you understand why the ADA Restoration Act is critical to pass and why we should all be involved.
See my continually-updated list of blog entries from all over the web about the ADA Restoration Act of 2007, always available from the top navigation bar at “On the ADA Restoration Act.”
See examples of specific court cases that have served to undermine the spirit and intent of the Americans with Disabilities Act: click on “ADA Court Cases” under “categories” in the right-hand navigation bar. I still have a few more ADA Court Cases in the coming few weeks.
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 updates. Or browse through background information on the ADA Restoration Act. Or contact your legislators.
