 Full Description: 
The ADA Legacy Project focuses on three things: preserving the history of the disability rights movement; celebrating its milestones; and educating the public and future generations of disability advocates. They do this by partnering with organizations and people who are doing great work in these areas.

Their website is designed to connect you with these organizations and people - to let you know what is happening across the country and in your local community. It will also be a clearinghouse for events that will be going on in 2014 and 2015 to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act.

The mission of The ADA Legacy Project is to honor the contributions of people with disabilities and their allies by:

preserving and promoting the history of the disability rights movement;
celebrating the impact of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), as well as other related disability rights legislation and accomplishments; and
educating the public to create opportunities for inclusion, access, and equal rights for the future.

Preservation, celebration, and education: this is how we will honor this historic civil rights legislation and create its legacy: a world in which every citizen is accepted for who they are.
