A Conversation with Haben Girma

We are thrilled to close out the Virtual AFB Leadership Conference with Haben Girma, the first Deafblind person to graduate from Harvard Law School, a White House Champion of Change, and recipient of a Helen Keller Achievement Award. Dr. Kirk Adams, AFB president and CEO, will chat with Haben in celebration of the upcoming 30th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act.

Our Commitment

We grieve for Breonna Taylor, George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, and so many others. We join with our colleagues in the civil rights community in calling on all levels of our government to commit to substantive and meaningful reform. And we commit to examining our own practices, and living our values, every day, to build a world of no limits for all.
