If you have a disability and have thought about what it might be like to study at a college in the U.S., ask someone like you who has done it. Diego Mariscal, who has cerebral palsy and is from Mexico, recently graduated from American University in Washington. He will tell you how a disabled student navigates on campus on November 19 at 10 a.m. EST (15:00 UTC).

Representatives from the disability-rights advocacy group Mobility International USA and George Washington University’s Disability Support Services will also answer your questions. They will be joined by Judith Heumann, the special adviser for international disability rights for the U.S. Department of State. “Education is a great equalizer,” Heumann says. “It opens opportunities … especially for people, like me, who have disabilities.”

The Americans with Disabilities Act helped make American colleges equalizers. Find out more through this link on November 19.
