Fireside chat with Andy Imparato, SLS alum and ED of Disability Rights CA

  • This event is archived.

We are delighted that Stanford Law School alumnus Andrew “Andy” Imparato, who recently returned to Northern California to lead Disability Rights CA, will be joining us for a fireside chat with the Levin Center for Public Service and Public Interest Law. Andy will be talking about his impactful career in disability rights, how he has navigated a career in the legal profession with a non-visible disability and his work at Disability Rights CA and on President Biden’s Covid-19 Health Equity Task Force.

 

Andy Imparato began work in February of 2020 as the Executive Director of Disability Rights California (DRC) after a high impact 26-year career in Washington, DC in disability advocacy and policy. DRC is the federally funded legal services agency that serves Californians with all types of disabilities across the age spectrum.

 

Since joining DRC, Andy has led advocacy efforts to protect the California disability community from health and economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, helped shape Governor Newsom’s Master Plan for Aging as part of his Administration’s Stakeholder Advisory Committee, and has worked to position California as a national leader on competitive integrated employment for people with disabilities.

 

In February, he was appointed by President Biden to be one of 12 public members of a federal COVID-19 Health Equity Task Force.
