Americans with Disabilities (ADA) Act Anniversary Fund
The Americans with Disabilities (ADA) Act, signed into law on July 26, 1990, prohibits the discrimination of Americans with disabilities. The ADA ensures protections for people with disabilities, both physical and mental, in several spheres including employment, public transportation/public spaces, communications, and government-rendered services and programming, among others. The ADA's ultimate goal is to ensure that people with disabilities are afforded equal opportunities to participate in public life with necessary accommodations and without discrimination based on their disability.
The following organizations are doing the critical work to ensure that the protections afforded by the ADA are upheld, and that those who have faced unlawful discrimination based on their disability have access to support and resources. Additionally, these organizations are advocating for additional protections for those with disabilities under the ADA as needed, increasing public visibility of those with disabilities, and promoting inclusive and accessible spaces. Your donation to this Fund, in honor of the ADA's signing anniversary, will help each of these organizations work towards their shared mission of creating equitable, accessible, and welcoming communities for all.
