Celebrating 20 Years of the ADA!
Today marks the day of a significant anniversary, and I wanted to share our thoughts with you. As most of you may or may not already know, SimplyHome is an affiliation of care providers who have been providing supports for the disabled and elderly since 1990.
Today is the 20th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). This groundbreaking civil rights law was intended to “establish a clear and comprehensive prohibition of discrimination on the basis of disability.” This protection is intended to be similar to that afforded Americans on the basis of race, religion, sex, national origin, and other characteristics through the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
We are thankful for this important legislation and look forward to more progress here in the United States, creating access for all people to fully participate in society.
