The U.S. Department of Justice’s Civil Rights Division and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Administration for Community Living and Office for Civil Rights


This is a virtual celebration of the 25th anniversary of the landmark Olmstead v. L.C. Supreme Court decision, which ruled that unjustified segregation of people with disabilities is a form of unlawful discrimination under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The Olmstead decision required states to ensure that people with disabilities can receive services in the most integrated setting appropriate to their needs, opening the doors to community inclusion and integration for even more people with disabilities.

Hosted by ACL, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office for Civil Rights, and the U.S. Department of Justice, the event will take place on June 20, 2024, from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. ET. Guests will hear from people with disabilities, federal leaders, and national experts about the impact of Olmstead, barriers to community living and true inclusion that people with disabilities still face 25 years later, and what is needed to fully realize the promise of this landmark decision.

This event is at seating capacity for the in-person option, so please register to attend virtually.
