Senator Tom Harkin was on PBS Newshour last night talking about
advocate in the U.S. Senate and was a key sponsor of the ADA when it
was passed. Ricardo Thornton who is also interviewed, was a speaker
at The Arc U.S. Convention in 2012.

Also, Director Romano had the privilege of spending some time with the
Senator at a recent national leadership meeting on employment of people
with disabilities.

Here is a link to the PBS Newshour story:
