Signed into law by George H. W. Bush, on July 26, 1990, the ADA is a declaration of equality for persons with disabilities; equality of opportunity, full participation, independent living and economic self-sufficiency. The law prohibits discrimination against individuals with disabilities in all areas of public life including employment, education, transportation, and all public and private places open to the general public.
There are many free virtual events scheduled to commemorate this historic law. We hope you can join the celebrations.
A consortium of disability organizations has planned a wide range of daily activities from creating a mural, virtual dance and sing alongs to serious discussions of voting accessibility, disability culture and the ADA.
From July 26 – September 27, 2020
All events are free and open to the public. View the schedule, and register to obtain a password at https://mi-ada.org/
