The Americans With Disabilities Act is Turning 25!

The Americans With Disabilities Act is Turning 25!

The signing of the ADA into law on July 26, 1990, was the culmination of a decades-long effort on behalf of thousands of people with disabilities and their allies and advocates. Getting disability rights legislation into public policy was not an easy task, mostly, because first policy makers had to be made aware of the discrimination that people with disabilities faced in their everyday lives. They had to have their eyes opened to the reality that the promises of prosperity and equality written in the constitution for all Americans, wasn’t being fulfilled for a whole class of people: those with disabilities.
