March 13, 2020. Professor Katie Eyer’s Article, “Claiming Disability” was selected for the 2020 Equality Law Scholars Forum. In the Article, Professor Eyer identifies a phenomenon–that many individuals who qualify as “disabled” under federal civil rights law do not self-identify as such–and discusses its potential impacts for disability civil rights. In the Article, she argues that it may be important for greater numbers of individuals to self-identify as disabled– and to do so publicly–for pervasive disability biases to be successfully addressed. Though this event was cancelled due to COVID-19, the paper is available here.
