Celebrating 25 Years of the Americans with Disabilities Act
July 26, 2015 — Today is an Independence Day celebration for the one in five American children and adults that experience a disability in their lifetime. It’s hard to believe that 25 years ago, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was signed into law, eliminating discrimination in employment, transportation and public accommodations.
In addition to the important “breaking down” of physical barriers such as curb cuts, ramped access to buildings, automatic opening doors and accessible public transportation, there is another legacy of the ADA. People with disabilities have equal rights and opportunities to pursue their dreams. Americans are looking beyond a disability – physical and cognitive – to see people like themselves, who each day seek a level playing field for rewarding jobs and fulfilling lives.
