MONTPELIER - Izabel Estrin, of Putney, received a Deborah Lisi-Baker Youth Leader award during a celebration of the 32nd anniversary of the signing of the Americans with Disabilities Act on Tuesday, July 26, at the Capitol Plaza.
This year’s award ceremony was particularly memorable as the disability community has been mourning the loss of Lisi-Baker after her unexpected death earlier this year.
Lisi-Baker had spent much of her life advocating for the human and civil rights of people with disabilities and had served as VCIL’s executive director for many years until retiring in 2009. She continued to serve on many disability advocacy boards right up until her death.
The award ceremony was part of the ADA celebration immediately following a congressional forum on disability justice moderated by Peter Hirschfeld.
