Friendly reminder that the ADA didn't pass itself. Disabled people had to fight for it.

Today, I saw a non-disabled speaker say "curb cut effect" to introduce the topic of services begun by/for marginalized communities that end up benefitting everyone - & then credit the disability community for coining such a valuable phrase. Happy 28th anniversary, ADA!

The Americans with Disabilities Act became law 28 years ago to prevent discrimination against those with disabilities. But that discrimination is far from over – so our work isn’t over to listen to and amplify the voices fighting for accessibility and equal opportunity.

Hi friends! Today, as we mark the 28th anniversary of the signing of the Americans with Disabilities Act (), let’s do one better. Let’s stop relegating people with disabilities to a single day in the calendar. (THREAD)

On the 28th Anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act being signed into law, we must commit to never again take this law – which has done so much to advance disability rights - for granted

The Americans with Disabilities Act turns 28 today. It ain't perfect, but it's an important start. Too many of us still locked up, and ableism runs rampant, as does racism and sexism and queerphobia. Celebrate by smashing fascism today.

The was a major bipartisan achievement signed by Pres. George HW Bush 28 years ago today. We need a new bipartisan commitment to keep the promise we made & ensure that all Americans with disabilities have equal rights, equal access & equal opportunities under the law

Twenty-eight years ago today, the United States of America made a promise of equality to all disabled Americans. That promise remains unfulfilled, but the commitment is still worth celebrating.

In honor of the ADA’s 28th anniversary, let’s take a look at some of the outdated language that is still often used when referring to people with disabilities, and the preferred alternatives. When we know better, we do better!

Today is the 28th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act- a moment when our government embraced inclusion. Today is also the deadline to reunite families separated at the border - our current xenophobic reality. No one is free until we are all free.

On the 28th anniversary of the Americans With Disabilities Act, it is important to remember that ADA is not a burden. It is a civil rights law that prohibits discrimination against people in every aspect of public life.

As someone who has grown up never knowing a day when I was not protected by the ADA, I am profoundly grateful for the people who fought to make it happen. Every day, we in the disability rights movement stand on the shoulders of giants.

The facial expression I get when I arrive at a building to find out the only accessible entrance to a building is in the back, that its locked, that theres no way to contact them to let them know you cant get in, and that youre so forking sick of it all.
