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.

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

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!

Happy 28th Bday to the Americans with Disabilities Act! We still have a long way to go to ensure access and rights are granted to all people, but I'm grateful for the ADA protections that allowed me to pursue K-BA education with accommodations necessary to do my best work.

On the 28th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act, I am profoundly grateful for everyone who made it possible for families like mine to feel like any other family because my son could be included in our community. There's more work to do, let's keep fighting.

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.

Today is the anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act. The disability community was critical in saving health care for millions. Any Medicare for All plan must include long-term services and supports.

28 years ago, the Americans With Disabilities Act opened new doors & opportunities to people across the country—but the fight for equality and integration is not over. We must continue to break down barriers and work to end the discrimination people with disabilities face.

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.

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.

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!

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.
