July 26, 2010 will mark the 20th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
The ADA, signed into law by President George H.W. Bush, is a comprehensive civil rights law that aims to eliminate discrimination towards people with disabilities. The ADA has expanded opportunities for Americans with Disabilities by reducing barriers, changing perceptions, and increasing full participation in community life.
On the 20th anniversary of the ADA, during our next IL Symposium in Missoula (see page 5), we will celebrate and recognize the progress that has been made under the ADA and recommitting our efforts to achieve full ADA compliance.
