July 26th ADA 23rd Anniversary

On July 26th, we marked the 23rd anniversary of the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA), a landmark piece of legislation.  USA Today talked about America setting the Gold Standard when referring to the ADA. In light of the strengths we have demonstrated there continues to be hesitation in at least one area. We continue to wait for the ratification of the Disabilities Rights Treaty. The Human Rights Watch sent a letter asking Congress to ratify the treaty in honor of this anniversary. The voices of those with different abilities need to be heard. Please join in the move towards ratifying this treaty. Everyone across the world stands together in this. Why are we waiting?
