On July 26, 1990, President George H.W. Bush signed the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) into law, and 2020 marks its 30th anniversary. To this day, it remains the most fundamental law protecting the civil rights of people with all types of disabilities, including those with autism.
The ADA is a civil rights law that prohibits discrimination against individuals with disabilities in all areas of public life, including jobs, schools, transportation, and all public and private places that are open to the general public.
Join us in celebrating the 30th anniversary of the ADA by attending virtual events at your choosing.
