Legacies: Judy Heumann

Hosted By: The Museum of Jewish Heritage-- A Living Memorial to the Holocaust

As one of the most influential disability rights activists in U.S. history, Judy Heumann has spent her career fighting to achieve respect, acceptance, and inclusion. The lawsuits she won, sit-ins she led, and legislation she championed all sparked a national movement that led to the passage of the Americans with Disabilities Act in 1990.

Heumann is also the daughter of refugees who fled Nazism in the 1930s, and the granddaughter of German Jews who were killed by the Nazis. Growing up in Brooklyn, she was acutely aware of her family’s story—and she understood, on multiple levels, the dangers of bigotry and the importance of speaking out against it.

Join Heumann for a conversation with Bill Abrams, President of Trickle Up and former President of New York Times Television, about her family background in the Holocaust, her new memoir, and her remarkable career fighting to forge a society in which we all belong.
