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.

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

Accessibility isn't just about ramps. It's about inclusion for each and every American. A must-read from on why the ADA matters why we can't let Republicans in Washington gut it.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
