Proclamation of Recommitment

Anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act

A Proclamation of Recommitment to
Full Implementation of the ADA

On July 26, 1990, President George H. Bush signed into law the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) to ensure the civil rights of people with disabilities. This legislation established a clear and comprehensive national mandate for the elimination of discrimination against individuals with disabilities.

The ADA has expanded opportunities for Americans with disabilities by reducing barriers and changing perceptions, increasing full participation in community life. However, the full promise of the ADA will only be reached if public entities remain committed in their efforts to fully implement the ADA.

On the 23rd anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act, we at the National Rehabilitation Information Center celebrate and recognize the progress that has been made by reaffirming the principals of equality and inclusion and recommitting our efforts to reach full ADA compliance.

NOW THEREFORE, the Director and staff do hereby reaffirm our commitment to work toward full ADA compliance in the United States.
