Presidential Candidates on Deaf and Disability Rights

Posted on 7 February 2008. Filed under: ADA Restoration Act of 2007, Advocacy | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

Where do the U.S. presidential candidates stand on deaf and disability rights, including on the ADA Restoration Act and the international Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD)?

One (deaf) blogger by the screen name Wilbrod the Gnome has done extensive research on precisely this topic. You can find relevant links, and an extensive analysis, at:

Another post of interest is <a href=”Obama’s Disability Rights Plan — A livejournal blogger posts the full text of Obama’s 9-page Disability Rights Plan. Among many other things, Obama supports ADA Restoration, and he also supports the international Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.

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

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 one more ADA Court Case to post 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. It is particularly important to write letters to your senators.

I know who to vote for !!!
Go go Obama!

Not me! I’ll vote for Clinton

I’ve asked Hillary Clinton where she stands with the restore ADA Law and her issues with the problem that the people face with their disabilties of this country. Never got an answer from her. I don’t expect someone like to answer every letter but I still don’t see this issue anywhere on her website or hear her say anything of it. I’ve looked at Obama’s website and he mentions diabilities and supports it. In fact, he wants to restore the ADA Law because he has faced it and experience himself and seen people faced it as well. So, go Obama!

Have you seen CC on Clinton’s and Obama’s blogs? I have not seen since January 2007. I gently reminded Clinton in January 2007 that there were 27 million Americans who have to depend on CC because they cannot hear.
