We hope to see you next Wednesday!
As you know, next Wednesday, June 26th, ADA will be celebrating our 66th Annual Awards Banquet at the Hyatt Regency Washington on Capitol Hill. That’s 66 years of honoring progressive leaders! This year we are proud to highlight the work of:
U.S. Senator Tom Harkin -- Frances Perkins Award for Public Service
A liberal lion, Senator Harkin has been a strong defender of Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid. For over 40 years, Senator Harkin has fought passionately to improve the quality of life for Americans with disabilities and their families, to reform our education system and ensure that every American has access to affordable health care.
Neera Tanden -- Winn Newman Equality Award
Neera Tanden is the President of Center for American Progress, Counselor to the Center for American Progress Action Fund and Co-Chair of Americans for Tax Fairness. Tanden has served in both the Obama and Clinton administrations, as well as presidential campaigns and think tanks.
Rashad Robinson - Bayard Rustin Citizen of Change Award

An expert on the impact of popular culture on American attitudes and values, Robinson is a leading strategist on utilizing media to shift public opinion on progressive and civil rights issues.
The evening will be led by Master of Ceremonies Karl Frisch with special guests, including AFL-CIO President Rich Trumka. It’s not too late to join us for this celebration.

Eagerly Watching the Supreme Court
Today the Supreme Court held off on the DOMA and California Prop 8 rulings; however the Court did announce its decision to strike down Arizona's voter registration law. This is a huge victory for the federal government's authority to regulate federal elections.
