Today we celebrate the 32nd anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). On this historic day, DRM honors thousands of individuals and their families who refused to accept major barriers that prevented individuals with disabilities of all ages, races and backgrounds from participating in community life. Their determined efforts combined with the staunch, persistent support of legislators and numerous other allies made this landmark legislation possible.
Learn about the history of the disability rights movement from internationally renowned disability rights activist Judy Heumann.
