ADA 30th Anniversary

Independence, Inc. recognizes and celebrates the 30th Anniversary of the American's with Disabilities Act this month, looking back at the history of the Independent Living Movement, honoring and remembering those who fought to change the landscape of America by breaking barriers to independence, accessibility and equality, and educating our communities not only on the crucial work that has been done, but the work that is still needed to ensure that the civil rights of people with disabilities are protected and full inclusion and integration into every aspect of society remains the focus.
