Americans with Disabilities Act 20th Anniversary Approaching

This July 26th will mark the 20th anniversary of President George H. Bush signing the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) into law. This landmark legislation established a clear and comprehensive national mandate for the elimination of discrimination against individuals with disabilities. Approaching the 20th anniversary of the ADA, the National MS Society celebrates the opportunities that the law has created and the rights that is has affirmed, while also continuing to work towards full implementation and advancement of other critical policies and legislation. The National MS Society will be participating in a collaborative ADA anniversary celebration in Washington, D.C.—“Spirit of the ADA…Lead On!” To learn more about ADA anniversary events happening in your area, click here. Further ways for MS activists to engage including instructions on how to issue a “Proclamation of Recommitment” may be found here.
