The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) became law in 1990. The ADA is a civil rights law that prohibits discrimination against individuals with disabilities in all areas of public life, including jobs, schools, transportation, and all public and private places that are open to the general public. The purpose of the law is to make sure that people with disabilities have the same rights and opportunities as everyone else.
Throughout the year and on the Anniversary of the passing of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) – July 26, people celebrate the progress made through implementation of the ADA in their workplaces, schools and communities. While much progress has been made, much remains to be done.
