The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Turns 23

July 23rd, 2013 in Uncategorized

On the 23rd anniversary of the Americans with Disability Act (ADA), ENACT wishes to take the time to remember this historic piece of legislation.  The passage of this comprehensive bill was a hard-fought victory for disability advocates, ensuring that people with disabilities have equal rights under the law to have access to opportunities available to all Americans.  Today, the journey towards achieving equal rights for disabled individuals continues.

As a potentially disabling disease, arthritis may qualify you for protections under this act.  Take this opportunity to find out more about the ADA at http://adaanniversary.org/whatisADA and about available disability resources on the ENACT website.
