24th Anniversary of the Americans With Disabilities Act

July 2014 — President Barack Obama encouraged the nation to celebrate the 24th Anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) in a recent Presidential Proclamation honoring the day.  The proclamation acknowledged that while there is still work to be done, the Obama Administration has worked diligently to expand access to community living, healthcare, and employment for people with disabilities. President Obama concluded his proclamation by noting that that Anniversary of the ADA allows us to “celebrate [the accomplishments of people with disabilities], stand against discrimination in all its forms, and honor all who sacrificed so future generations might know a more equal society.”
