Easterseals Alaska also advocates for the passage of legislation to help people with disabilities achieve independence, including the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Passed in 1990, the ADA prohibits discrimination against anyone who has a mental or physical disability, guaranteeing the civil rights of people with disabilities.
At the core of the Easter Seals organization is a common passion for caring, shared by its staff members and volunteers, and by those who support its mission. This heart-felt commitment to helping people with disabilities and their families is what Easterseals Alaska is all about.
