While many Americans have heard of The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA, few are aware of its significance.  Because of the ADA, people with disabilities can participate more fully in their communities, compete more effectively for jobs, travel more easily in their communities and throughout the country, and have more complete access to goods and services.

The ADA protects nearly 54 million Americans with disabilities, such as spinal cord injury, blindness, hearing impairment, epilepsy, HIV infection and AIDS, diabetes, multiple sclerosis, muscular dystrophy, emphysema, cancer, dyslexia, organic brain disorder, cognitive impairment, and depression, to name a few.

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is an important step forward in the growth of diversity, equity, and inclusion in the United States.  Over the last three decades, the ADA has given millions of people access to economic, educational, and a multitude of other opportunities, enabling them to engage in daily activities and live fulfilling lives.
