The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was a game changer
for people with disabilities. On July 26 we celebrate the 31st
Anniversary of the ADA being signed into law.
While 31 years isn’t a milestone anniversary, we celebrate birthdays
and anniversaries every year. We don’t skip the odd years in favor of the milestones
because every year adds new experiences, wisdom, and progress.
July 26th marks one more year of voluntary
compliance that allows people with disabilities access to buildings, programs
and services, employment opportunities and more. This year marked significant
advancement in representation. We saw more people with disabilities than ever
before in books, streaming media and on the big and small screens.
As the 31st anniversary of the Americans with
Disabilities Act approaches, we encourage you to take a moment and mark the
anniversary. Whether you celebrate, learn more, take action, or look back and
remember, we all should mark the occasion and appreciate it every year.
Here are some ideas to get you started.

Enjoy your 31st Anniversary celebration. We’ll celebrate together again next year.
