ACM's US Technology Policy Committee (USTPC) will host a HotTopics webinar session, "With Liberty and Web Accessibility for All: Getting the DOJ’s Upcoming Rulemaking Right" on Wednesday, March 1, at 5 pm EST. Join a panel of ACM experts as they discuss what the new rules should look like, whether they can they be crafted to well serve both user and business interests, what assistive technologies must they enable, if the new rules fully meet the needs of the one in four Americans affected by some form of disability, and how accessible websites should be designed to conform with the Americans with Disabilities Act.

- Tim Elder, civil rights litigator, founder of the TRE Legal Practice
