ADA 30th Anniversary
Join Disability Rights Wisconsin in celebrating Americans with Disabilities Act 30 - July 26, 2020 - 30 years Strong! 1990 to 2020


On July 26th, 1990 President George H. Bush signed into law the Americans with Disabilities Act, one of America’s most comprehensive pieces of civil rights legislation. The ADA prohibits discrimination and guarantees that people with disabilities have the same opportunities as everyone else to participate in the mainstream of American life: to enjoy equality of opportunity, full participation, independent living, and economic self-sufficiency.

On Thursday, July 23, 2020 at 11 AM, Disability Rights Wisconsin will host a statewide virtual event and watch party to recognize and highlight the 30th anniversary of the American with Disabilities Act.

To honor this milestone, DRW will release our new video celebrating the ADA 30th.  The video features Wisconsinites with disabilities, DRW staff, Governor Evers, and other disability advocates speaking about the impact of the ADA.
