30th Anniversary of the ADA

The Americans with Disabilities Act was signed into law on July 26, 1990, by President George H.W. Bush—affirming the inherent dignity of every person. This sweeping legislation protects people with disabilities against discrimination in the workplace and ensures equal access to public accommodations, among other protections. ACL and the HHS Office for Civil Rights came together to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the ADA by telling the story of how it was created, showcasing progress made toward achieving its promise, and illustrating work across the government towards full inclusion of people with disabilities.
