The Office of Fair Housing and Equal Opportunity (FHEO) presented a NEW episode of the FHEO Table Talks Series!

FHEO hosted a panel on Changing Perceptions to Change Lives, a discussion on disability rights laws and the barriers that still exist. This episode featured Dr. Sachin Pavithran, Executive Director of the U.S. Access Board, and Jennifer Mathis, Deputy Legal Director & Director of Policy and Legal Advocacy at the Bazelon Center for Mental Health Law.

James M. Roberts, Director, Education and Outreach Division, moderated the discussion. The panelists shared their perspectives on the progress of disability rights laws and how the laws have impacted the lives of millions of people with disabilities at work, school, and in the home.
