A Guide to Disability Rights
The American with Disabilities Act (ADA), enacted 28 years ago reaffirmed our nation’s commitment to ensuring that people with disabilities (56 millions Americans) have the right to live, work, and fully participate in the community alongside with their fellow citizens. The ADA prohibits discrimination on the basis of disability in employment, State and local government, public accommodations, commercial facilities, transportation, and telecommunications. To be protected by the ADA, one must have a disability or have a relationship or association with an individual with a disability. Learn more HERE.
