Event Details

Join “Texas Standard” and a panel of experts, including Texas Parent to Parent’s Amy Litzinger, in a conversation about some of the top issues affecting the 3.5 million Texans who live with a disability.

Specifically, we will discuss:

–  Current challenges and opportunities in fully inclusive education,

–  Legal and practical access to the voting booth for all, and

–  Transportation technology, including autonomous vehicles and accessible navigation tools

Texas Standard reporter/producer Shelly Brisbin, who recently hosted Texas Standard’s hour-long special, The State of Disability in Texas, will lead the conversation. She is a multi-time winner of Barbara Jordan Media Awards, which honor the best reporting about disability in the state.

Help inform our discussion by submitting your questions about education, voting and transportation ahead of time via the Texas Standard contact form.

Accessible seating and ASL interpretation provided. The Long Center is accessible via public transit, including CaptMetro routes 1, 3, 7, 10, 20, 30, 801 and 803.

Audio from the event will be recorded and available later on KUT 90.5 and KUT.org, along with a transcript.
