ADA 30, Americans with Disabilities Act 1990-2020

Listen to the audio version of Chuck Saia's reflections on the ADA's past, present, and future. audio file

We are celebrating the 30th Anniversary of the ADA, and we are in forward motion! We are looking forward with an exciting vision that will take us through the next 30 years and at the center of this vision is one word, Inclusion. As we removed barriers, educated ourselves on disability rights, fought for awareness and compliance, we discovered that we all benefitted. While our focus ahead must always include shoring up the blocks of knowledge and awareness, it is time to broaden focus towards a larger goal of reaching inclusion for all. The Governor’s Commission on Disability lives and breathes the Americans with Disabilities Act every day. The Commission and its staff have their boots on the ground to address the needs of a changing society and to insure that the awareness of Disability Rights are Civil Rights are front and and center. Happy Anniversary ADA!
