At Summit DD, we believe the strongest communities include people of ALL abilities. Join us in celebrating the 32nd Anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act, the first comprehensive civil rights law for persons with disabilities.
On July 26, 1990 the ADA was signed into law prohibiting 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. The purpose of the law is to make sure that people with disabilities have the same rights and opportunities as everyone else. The ADA gives civil rights protections to individuals with disabilities similar to those provided to individuals on the basis of race, color, sex, national origin, age, and religion. It guarantees equal opportunity for individuals with disabilities in public accommodations, employment, transportation, state and local government services, and telecommunications.
