American Disabilities Act ADA
Over two decades ago, the Americans with Disabilities Act was passed, marking a pivotal moment in our nation’s history. For the first time, individuals with disabilities were guaranteed the right to equal access and opportunity in the workplace, in schools and universities, and in public places.
The law has had a major impact on countless Americans, providing necessary accommodations and levelling the playing field for those with disabilities. While there is still work to be done to ensure full accessibility, safety and inclusion for everyone, the passage of the ADA was a critical step forward towards a more just and equitable society.
