Description: United Spinal continues to hear of terrible experiences wheelchair users have with air travel. This webinar will highlight some solutions to problems wheelchair users have encountered at the airport so they can be better equipped to avoid future travel woes. Attendees will learn about important new bills in both the House and Senate that will amend The Air Carrier Access Act, which became law in 1986, and prohibits commercial airlines from discriminating against passengers with disabilities. Attendees will hear from Congressional staff handling these bills. Learn how to take back your air travel rights and about advocacy opportunities throughout the year, including Roll on Capitol Hill 2018, that will empower you to become a stronger self-advocate.
Audience: Roll on Capitol Hill participants, wheelchair users, disability advocates, and other interested parties.
Presenters: Meghan Ladwig, Legislative Assistant, Office of Senator Tammy Baldwin (D-WI); Peter La Fountain, Legislative Assistant and Elyssa Malin, Legislative Assistant, Office of Representative Jim Langevin (D-RI); Alexandra Bennewith, MPA, Vice President, Government Relations, United Spinal Association
