Thanks to the passage of the ADA many forms of art, including performing and visual arts are now available for PWD. Theaters provide ASL Interpreters and Audio Describers. Museums provide tours for various types of disabilities. Martha Hage


Thanks to the ADA, I have an accessible home, transportation, stores, restaurants, parks and community bathrooms. United we must do more to make certain ADA continues to provide access for all PWDs.

I’m grateful for the physical barriers that have been removed and the rights we have gained. We have come a long way, but we have more work to do. Jeff Bangsberg, Public Policy Analyst


This may be a day of police brutality. A more subtle cruelty results when Persons With Disabilities are systemically ignored. Thanks to the ADA, they can be ignored no longer! Mark & Susan Lasoff


Thanks to all the activists who made the ADA a reality! Now I don’t have to crawl up steps to visit my doctor, dentist, restaurant, church, school, voting poll or library. Sharon VanWinkel
