Joyce welcomes disability rights leader, Jennifer Mathis, Esq., deputy legal director and director of programs for the Bazelon Center for Mental Health Law.  Ms. Mathis has worked primarily on the Medicaid rights of adults and children, discrimination claims under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), and issues related to judicial nominations.  She has recently returned to the Bazelon Center from the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, where she worked on the regulations for the Americans with Disabilities Act Amendments Act.  During the show, Ms. Mathis will talk about her work at Bazelon, which includes litigation on community litigation claims, voting rights, and the parental rights of individuals with mental disabilities.  She will also discuss how much of her work has focused on federalism issues that have threatened enforcement of federal disability rights in the courts.
