Celebration of the 25th anniversary of ADA

In celebration of the 25th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (‪#ADA‬), the IRC hosted a screening of videos highlighting the significance of ADA in America’s struggle for equal opportunity for all of its citizens. Approximately 20 disability activists and NGO representatives attended the event. After the screening, U.S. Embassy Press Attache Carina Klein moderated a discussion of disability rights in Tunisia and how to achieve better enforcement of the Constitutional rights of persons with disabilities in Tunisia.
