ADA Anniversary Tool Kit


Celebrations of the July 26, 1990 signing of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) by President George H. Bush took place across the nation during the week of July 22-28, 2013.

The ADA and the ADA Amendments Act of 2008 (ADAAA) give civil rights protections to individuals with disabilities similar to those provided to individuals on the basis of race, color, sex, national origin, age, and religion. The ADA and ADAAA also assure equal opportunity for individuals with disabilities for access to businesses, employment, transportation, state and local government programs and services, and telecommunications.

To celebrate this milestone, the Southeast ADA Center, a member of the ADA National Network and a project of the Burton Blatt Institute at Syracuse University, has created an ADA Anniversary Tool Kit for use by the public and the media through the ADA Anniversary website (ADAanniversary.org). The Tool Kit contains:

• background and history on the ADA;
• information about the Supreme Court’s July 1999 Olmstead Decision prohibiting the unnecessary institutionalization of persons with disabilities;
• disability statistics; and
• other resources on the ADA.
