Les Québécois attendent toujours

The Americans with Disabilities Act turns 25!

This year, the Americans with Disabilities Act celebrated its 25th anniversary. Activities were organized throughout the United States and while people recognized that a lot of work still has to be done, they still take pride in this law.

“The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) became law in 1990. The ADA is a civil rights law that prohibits discrimination against individuals with disabilities in all areas of public life, including jobs, schools, transportation, and all public and private places that are open to the general public.”
