Easterseals youth leadership network have created a campaign to #TeachDisabilityHistory focused on educating and empowering people, with and without disabilities, to build the most inclusive future. The goals of the campaign are to educate people about why it is important that disability history be taught in schools, as well as to make teachers in Massachusetts public schools aware they can now access the disability history curriculum and documentary; "The Great Fight For Disability Rights."
July 26th, 2020 marked the 30th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) being signed into law, prohibiting discrimination against people with disabilities. Learn more about the history of critical legislation and Easterseals role in it.
