In both the letter and the spirit of the ADA, progress continues to be made in Georgia and across the country to provide equal opportunities in the areas of public life, including jobs, schools, transportation, and all public and private places that are open to the general public.
In this webinar, we will be highlighting several organizations across Georgia and their respective initiatives they have taken to improve both the access and quality of life of people with disabilities. Among many other organizations across Georgia, representative organizations in this webinar will include the State ADA Coordinator’s Office, Georgia Department of Corrections, Georgia Department of Driver Services, the University System of Georgia and its continued commitment toward the Galileo application available to all Georgians, and the Center for Inclusive Design and Innovation.
Stacey Valrie Peace is the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Coordinator for State ADA Coordinator's Office - Georgia State Financing & Investment Commission.
