25th Anniversary of the American Disability Act

25th_logo ada act

Wow! it is so hard to believe that its been 25 years since the Americans With Disabilities Act was signed into law by President George H.W. Bush on July 26, 1990. imagine just 25 years ago a world that prevented people with disabilities using public transportation such as buses and trains or having the ability to use public bathrooms and shop at retail stores and enjoy a night out at a restaurant .  We have come a long way and still have a way to go.
