Today, July 26, 2021, marks the 31st anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) into law. What is the ADA?

"The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) became law in 1990. The ADA is a civil rights law that prohibits discrimination against individuals with disabilities in all areas of public life, including jobs, schools, transportation, and all public and private places that are open to the general public. The purpose of the law is to make sure that people with disabilities have the same rights and opportunities as everyone else." 


You can learn a lot more about the ADA, including participation in training, on the ADA National Network site, as well as searching for information in our library resources via OneSearch.
