Preserve the ADA

We cannot roll back the rights of people with disabilities.

The ADA Amendments Act of 2008 (ADAAA) that amended the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 “provides a clear and comprehensive national mandate for the elimination of discrimination against individuals with disabilities.”

The Disability:IN strongly supports the goals of the ADA to ensure equality of opportunity, full participation, independent living and economic self-sufficiency.

We deeply value the history of the disability and business communities working together to draft the legislation.

Any changes to this important law and its provisions should be drafted the same way as the original legislation, with the disability and business communities working together to find solutions.
