HAPPENING TONIGHT 6pm: Rashid Event w/ Sen. Tom Harkin
Rashid Holds Virtual Event With Sen. Tom Harkin Saturday, October 24, 6pm
STAFFORD, VA. – Qasim Rashid, Democratic nominee for Congress in Virginia’s First Congressional District, will be holding a virtual event with former United States Senator Tom Harkin at 6:00 PM on Saturday, October 24.
The event will center on people with disabilities and making policy more inclusive. Harkin has been described by many, including the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation, as the “chief architect” of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
“I’m proud to say I’ll be doing an event with former Senator Tom Harkin,” writes Rashid in a Medium post. “As a human rights attorney, it means the world to me that I get to appear alongside him because disability rights are human rights.”
This year marks 30 years of the ADA, landmark civil rights legislation which was signed by President George H.W. Bush.
