Today (July 26, 2020) marks the 30th anniversary of the date when President George H. W. Bush signed the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) into law. The ADA legislation protects the civil rights of persons with disabilities by guaranteeing equal opportunities for them in various aspects of public life.
You could of course celebrate with cake and ice cream. (Ice cream sounds particularly good during this heat wave.) The ADA National Network has some additional suggestions for marking this significant anniversary.
The Morning Edition show on National Public Radio is asking persons with disabilities to help them document how the ADA has impacted their lives. They accept written, audio, and video personal stories. Find out more about your opportunity to share here: https://www.npr.org/2020/07/22/893863351/after-30-years-how-has-the-ada-helped-you.
