Please Join Us! Celebrating the 25th Anniversary of Olmstead v. L.C.

June 5, 2024

Thursday, June 20, 2024 | 2:00-4:00 PM ET
Register for the event

Please join us for a 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 (DOJ), the event will take place on June 20, 2024, from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM 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.

You can attend in person at the DOJ Great Hall, 950 Pennsylvania Ave. N.W., Washington, D.C., or virtually. Once the limited seating capacity has been reached, in-person registration will close and only the virtual option will be available on the registration page.

ASL and CART will be provided. If you need other accommodations to participate, please send an email to by Friday, June 17.

We hope to see you there!
