Celebrating 31 Years of the Americans with Disabilities Act
On July 26th, 1990, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was passed into law by sitting President George H.W. Bush. On the 31st anniversary of its inception, we take this time to reflect on the monumental impact of this historical civil rights legislation.
The ADA prohibited discrimination towards individuals with disabilities, guaranteeing equal opportunity for all. Not only does this law protect civil liberties, but it also ensures reasonable accommodation for every American citizen.
In recognition of the ADA anniversary, we encourage clients and staff to support the Better Care Better Jobs Act. This bill is a direct investment in disability services, increasing Medicaid funding for Home and Community Based Services. To voice your support of this legislation, click here.
