Nothing About Us, Without Us — The 25th Anniversary of ADA

Friday | 8:00am to 9:00pm Saturday |9:00am – 5:00pm Sunday | 1:00pm to 9:00pm| Brown Gallery, Doe Library

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was signed into law on July 26, 1990, by President George H.W. Bush. The ADA is one of America’s most comprehensive pieces of civil rights legislation that prohibits discrimination and guarantees that people with disabilities have the same opportunities as everyone else to participate in the mainstream of American life — to enjoy employment opportunities, to purchase goods and services, and to participate in State and local government programs and services. The exhibition draws on the history of the Disabled, the activism of the 1970s, and events which led to the passage of the ADA.
