Fighting for yes!: the story of disability rights activist Judith Heumann / by Maryann Cocca-Leffler ; illustrated by Vivien Mildenberger ; with a note from Judith Heumann.


In the 1970s an important disability rights law, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, was waiting to be signed. Judy [Heumann] and other disability rights activists fought for YES! They held a sit-in until Section 504 was signed into law. Section 504--established thanks in large part to the ongoing work of Judy and her community--laid the foundation for the Americans with Disabilities Act." -- Front jacket flap.
