NARIC’s Proclamation to Recommit to Full Implementation of the ADA

On July 26, 1990, President George H.W. 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. On July 26, 2015, we will celebrate the 25th anniversary of the signing of the ADA.

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

On the 25th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act, we, the staff of the National Rehabilitation Information Center, celebrate and recognize the progress that has been made by reaffirming the principles of equality and inclusion and recommitting our efforts to reach full ADA compliance.

NOW THEREFORE, we, the staff of the National Rehabilitation Information Center, do hereby reaffirm to continue to work toward full ADA compliance.

Join the Pledge! Sign the individual pledge or organization proclamation to recommit to the ADA on its 25th anniversary!

Expand opportunities and pledge on! Commit for another 25 years and beyond. www.adaanniversary.org. 1990-2015 25 years  Americans with disabilities act www.adata.org
