On July 26, 1990, President George H.W. Bush signed into law the Americans with Disabilities Act, which prohibits discrimination in employment, transportation, public accommodations, commercial facilities, telecommunications, and state and local government services.
The act paved the way for increased intersection in society for people with disabilities, whether seen or unseen, and fostered access to places and services, which improved the quality of life for all of us.
