30 Years of the Americans with Disabilities Act, the ADA
ADA-Indiana is sponsoring Indiana’s 30th Anniversary of the ADA Celebration on July 24, 2020 at the Indianapolis Artsgarden. The Celebration will take place at the Indianapolis Artsgarden from 11:00 a.m. to 2 p.m. Other co-sponsors include the Indiana Governor’s Council for People with Disabilities, the Great Lakes ADA Center, and the Indiana Institute on Disability and Community at Indiana University.
In the 30 years since the Americans with Disabilities Act was signed into law, there have been major improvements in making public places and services more accessible to people with disabilities. The law, intended to ensure equal rights for people with disabilities, has brought a host of changes in workplaces, transportation, communication and other areas. Employers must make reasonable attempts to accommodate workers with disabilities, while buildings, transportation, and other public places must be accessible to all.
