Today is the 24th Anniversary of the ADA. I was talking to a contrarian last night you was trying to convince me that the ADA isn’t needed because shouldn’t people just create access because they want to. I, of course, said that if people actually treated each other right then we wouldn’t need civil rights laws. Plus without the ADA and 504 there is no way in hell I would have gotten through college. Thanks to supporters of the ADA (even Bush 1 and 2 who signed it into law and then put the teeth back in after the supreme court took it out) for creating access and freedom for more people. Now let’s actually implement the law!
Wanted to share my ADA to celebrate!
