The ADA, known as the Americans with Disabilities Act, is a piece of legislation that ensures that all people with disabilities in the United States have equal access to all areas of public life, such as jobs, schools, and transportation.

On July 26th, we celebrated the 33rd anniversary of the ADA and what the law means for the one in four Americans living with a disability. We know the fight for the civil and human rights of people with disabilities is ongoing. Disability rights are part of a broader civil rights movement for justice that includes race, gender, class, immigration status, gender expression and all experiences at the intersection of multiply marginalized identities.
