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.
Next month, ENACT will launch a whole new series about ways to live actively with arthritis. Stay tuned for these exciting new topics!
Next month’s topic is: “Arthritis and Employment Part 2: When and How to Tell People at Work about Your Arthritis or Other Rheumatic Conditions“
