The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was signed into law by President George H.W. Bush on July 26, 1990.
The act gives civil rights protections to individuals with disabilities, and helps to ensure equal access to businesses, employment, transportation, state and local government programs and services, and telecommunications.
To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the law, an ADA Anniversary Tool Kit is available with videos, resources and more.
You can recommit to the full implementation of the act by signing the ADA25 Pledge On Initiative
