Your Call 082108 Disability and common sense

What do we need to understand about the range of experiences among the disabled? On the next Your Call, we'll have a conversation about the myriad of issues facing the disabled population in the US. Currently, there are 50 millions Americans with disability. The Americans with Disabilities Act took effect in 1992; but today, many people with disabilities no longer have protection under the ADA. What needs to be changed? And what are our social attitudes towards people with disability? It's Your Call, with Rose Aguilar, and you.
