Joy Levin Welan, CCAS BA ’05

Joy Levin Welan, CCAS BA ’05, a trial attorney in the Disability Rights Section of the Civil Rights Division of the U.S. Department of Justice, was featured in a blog post “When Personal is Professional – Celebrating 22 Years of the ADA.” In the blog, Welan writes, “These cases are deeply personal to me. Every time I hear the stories of people who are affected by the discriminatory policies at issue in our Olmstead cases – sometimes people who share my diagnosis – I am reminded that, but for a few twists of fate, their life could be mine…I feel privileged to play a small role in the department’s ADA enforcement work and profoundly grateful for the ADA, which has enriched not only my life, but the lives of millions of other Americans with disabilities.” Read the full story here.
