Celebrating the 25th Anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act

Celebrating the 25th Anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act

Our Self Advocacy Group, a group of more than 20 individuals with disabilities who seek to enhance their input into government policies, perceptions and services that affect them, hosted an amazing celebration in honor of the 25th Anniversary of The Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) at our main facility in Hauppauge!

More than 50 individuals with disabilities participated in the event.

This is the first year that the Self Advocacy Group had full control over an ADA celebration. The event kicked off with a parade around our facility and also included skits performed by the individuals on the different aspects of the ADA, an open mic and a discussion on the Act.

On July 26, 1990 President George H.W. Bush signed the ADA into law. This federal law prohibits discrimination against people with disabilities and guarantees them the same opportunities as Americans without a disability.

“The event was great and a lot of fun,” Anthony, president of the Self Advocacy Group said. “This is a celebration for people with disabilities all over the world.”
