Washington Seminar 2014

file000619663500Monday, January 27, through Thursday, January 30, 2014

It is time again for us to take our concerns directly to our legislators in Washington, DC.
This year’s issues again includes the Technology, Education, and Accessibility in College and Higher Education (TEACHE) Act.

College students need access to their textbooks and online resources as much as students in earlier grades.

Another issue this year is the fight for Fair Wages for People with Disabilities.

The current laws allow employers to pay disabled employees less than the minimum wage, and this practice needs to be stopped.

The third issue is the Air Carrier Access Act, which is a movement towards making airport kiosks and web sites accessible.

In addition to meeting with members of Congress and Senators, Washington Seminar is the site of student seminars and meetings of many NFB groups and divisions.
