Action Needed on Texas' Sovereign Immunity from the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)
April 22, 2015
For the past decade, CTD has fought for legislation that waives Texas' claim of sovereign immunity from the ADA and permanently acknowledges the basic civil right of freedom from discrimination. There hadn't been much movement on this issue this year, but now, we are getting a shot.

We are offering four scholarships, which can be used for for the spring, summer, or fall semesters of 2015, to 2nd year associate students; undergraduate sophomores, juniors, and seniors; and graduate students with disabilities who are pursuing communication or media-related degrees. Each recipient will receive $5,625 for the tuition and fees at their college or university.
