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!

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.

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 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, 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.

28 years ago, Houston resident former President signed the Americans with Disabilities Act. Our city deeply values inclusion & respects the disability community's power. We'll keep working until all those walls of exclusion finally come tumbling down.

This week in 1990, ADA became law. 28 years later, only 24% of NYC's subway stations meet the law's standards. For every inaccessible station, there is someone who can't get to work, pick up their children from daycare, or visit their doctor.

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.

Because of ADA, I have a safe office space, an accessible place to park, flexibility to work from home, and a service dog. I never expected to become disabled at age 29, but ADA has allowed me to continue to live independently

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.
