WASHINGTON, Nov. 14 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Senator Tom Harkin and other members of Congress will join Yoshiko Dart and disability rights leaders to welcome back The Road To Freedom: Keeping the Promise of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), a yearlong, cross-country bus tour and traveling exhibit promoting the civil rights of people with disabilities and advocating for passage of the ADA Restoration Act of 2007. This legislation will restore the vital civil rights protections under the ADA that have been weakened in the courts in recent years. A U.S. Senate hearing on the ADA Restoration Act of 2007 has been scheduled to coincide with the return of the Road To Freedom bus to Washington, DC on November 15, 2007.

Road To Freedom events have included disability leaders and U.S. Senators, Members of Congress, Governors and other policymakers at sites such as the National Civil Rights Museum, Brown v. Board of Education Historic Site, Clinton Presidential Library, Mount Rushmore, as well as statehouses, city halls, museums, churches, colleges, and schools throughout the country.
