"September 28, when a woman, Ana Maria Archila, stuck her foot in the door of an elevator and gave Republican Jeff Flake, a potential swing voter, a talking-to, and kept that foot in that door so that another woman, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, could do the same, as the cameras rolled, live. The video went viral."

On July 26th, marked the 28th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Thousands of disability activists, including many of those who made this civil rights landmark a reality, convened at the National Council on Independent Living’s (NCIL) 2018 Annual Conference. ​Celebrating ​#ADA28 alongside disability activists​ allows us to revisit the story of how disability came to be a civil right, even as it was pathologized and co-opted into ableist narratives. How can we make this not a conversation about ability, but accessibility, one that is intersectional and empowering? This special report is a collaboration with the NCIL, with the help of our generous sponsors and donors. Support theLFShow.
