Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Resources

“Disability touches all of us. More than 50 million Americans have a disability, and living up to the principles of the ADA is an obligation we all share. Every person deserves equal access, equal opportunity, and equal respect, and we each must do our part to ensure our Nation's promise is within the reach of all Americans.”  

       -President Barack Obama in his July 26, 2015 Presidential Proclamation, Anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act, 2015
