Celebrate the Americans with Disabilities Act
The ADA is one of America’s most comprehensive pieces of civil rights legislation that prohibits discrimination and guarantees that people with disabilities have the same opportunities as everyone else to participate in the mainstream of American life – employment, access to goods and services, and participation in programs.
