Easterseals Celebrates 28 years of the Americans with Disabilities Act

Honk and Wave collageJuly 26th, marked the 28th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), which was signed into law in 1990 by President George H.W. Bush. The ADA signaled a new era of opportunity for Americans with disabilities. The law prohibits discrimination against job seekers and employees based on disability, and also outlines ways to accommodate those with disabilities in the workplace and in public.

We have made progress but, we are still working to break down barriers so those with disabilities can live, learn, work and play in their own communities!

As a leading service provider for people with disabilities and their families, and as an original supporter of the ADA, we’re doing everything in our power to connect people with disabilities directly to those much-needed – and often life-changing – resources and to advocate for a more inclusive world.
