Michael Morris, J.D., Senior Advisor to the Burton Blatt Institute at Syracuse University, and founder of National Disability Institute, will be inducted into the Susan Daniels Disability Mentoring Hall of Fame Class of 2022. This award honors outstanding individuals and organizations who, in 2022, made a significant difference in the lives of youth and adults with disabilities through mentoring and to raise awareness about the importance of mentoring for individuals with disabilities.
Throughout his long career, Mr. Morris has worked to improve the lives of people with disabilities by focusing on economic empowerment, inclusion, and public policy. He helped lead the passage of the Achieving A Better Life Experience (ABLE) Act in 2014 and helped establish the ABLE National Resource Center.
Beginning in 2015, the National Disability Mentoring Coalition named outstanding disability community leaders into the Susan M. Daniels Disability Mentoring Hall of Fame. These inductees were selected for their demonstrated commitment to mentoring and for their impact on improving the lives of people with disabilities. The public has been invited to nominate individuals and organizations for the Hall of Fame every year. A total of 156 individuals and 22 organizations have been inducted to date.
The Southeast ADA Center is a project of the Burton Blatt Institute at Syracuse University. We congratulate our colleague, Michael Morris on being selected to receive this well-deserved award for his tireless work to improve the lives of people with disabilities.
The Induction Ceremony for the Class of 2022 is scheduled for Tuesday, March 28th, 2023, at 6:00 p.m., Eastern time. Free registration for the Zoom online event is now open.
