“Let the shameful wall of exclusion come tumbling down.” As the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 was signed, President George H.W. Bush spoke those words.

This five-part podcast brings Pittsburgh-area people with disabilities finding their place in towns, stores and faith communities. The program is produced by PublicSource in collaboration with Unabridged Press and supported by The FISA Foundation. The Center for Media Innovation at Point Park University provided technical assistance.
