ADA – Arlington Getting It Right Workshop – July 30-31





This workshop will provide tools and information to emergency managers, disability organizations and stakeholders who want to improve resources and services to people with disabilities and their families before, during and after a disaster. This workshop will encourage facilitation of full integration and inclusion in all aspects of emergency preparedness and response. We will also help you understand how to be in full compliance to avoid litigation. The speakers include representatives from FEMA, disability stakeholder organizations, a representative from the Virginia Department of Emergency Management and those involved in the recent litigation of the Brooklyn Center for Independence of the Disabled v. City of New York.
