What is the ADA?

The Americans with Disabilities Act, or ADA, grew out of the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s; however, discrimination against people with disabilities was not addressed until 1973 when Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 became law. The Americans with Disabilities Act was passed by George H.W. Bush on July 26, 1990.

Since then, advocacy groups representing millions of Americans and people around the world, who are prevented from equal access both in the physical and digital world, have fought to make the world more inclusive and guarantee the rights of individuals under the laws of their respective countries.
