Happy Bday ADA!

The Americans with Disabilities Act turns 25 tomorrow on July 26, 2015. This statute garnered substantial widespread support when it was enacted over two decades ago, and continues to be a cornerstone of civil rights law. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission takes a close look at this anniversary, reflecting on the importance of the law and providing a number of historical and current resources on the topic. The EEOC’s recognition of this anniversary is available here, and includes a statement from Chair Jenny R. Yang.

The ADA  demonstrates how a civil rights law can achieve widespread support and effectively protect the rights  of all individuals.  The EEOC materials  are worth a look if you are interested  in this area of the  law.
