Celebrate the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)
Today is the 32nd anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) America’s first intensive legislation focusing on the equality for people with disabilities. This Act has been an impetus in driving our country forward towards equal opportunity, full participation, independent living, and economic self-sufficiency for the estimated 61 million individuals with disabilities in America.
As we celebrate the ADA, we should reflect on the progress that has been made and focus on achieving the ADA’s full promise of advancing disability access and inclusion for all.
