Assistant Attorney General Eric Dreiband Delivered Remarks on Disability Rights at the Site Where Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was Assassinated

The Lorraine Motel is the sight of one of the great tragedies in our history – the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.  We are here at the Motel and the National Civil Rights Museum for an important purpose:  training about disability rights.  It is altogether appropriate that we have gathered at this civil rights landmark for this reason.  Disability rights are civil rights, and it is critically important that individuals with disabilities enjoy the privileges and freedoms available to all Americans.  Today’s training will, I hope, enable such individuals to enjoy and to exercise their right to vote.
