Thank you to everyone who followed along with our virtual celebration of the 30th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
Although we were unable to gather in person this year, the Minnesota Council on Disability (MCD) hopes that the revival of our “Thanks to the ADA” campaign gave you a sense of how the ADA impacts significant areas of everyday life.
In addition to the information and resources offered through “Thanks to the ADA,” we wanted to continue highlighting the personal impact of the ADA with the Keep Moving Forward project.
As a reminder, here is a description of Keep Moving Forward from our partners at AMPERS:
Keep Moving Forward explores what’s better and what needs improvement for people with disabilities since the passage of the Americans with Disabilities Act. Together we keep moving toward full access and inclusion in all aspects of life. This project is produced by AMPERS and supported by Minnesota Council on Disability, the Minnesota Humanities Center, the National Endowment of the Humanities and the Minnesota Arts & Cultural Heritage Fund.
The celebration of the 30th anniversary of the ADA continues throughout the year. Visit ADA 30 for more on how you can celebrate, learn, and share the impact of this momentous civil rights legislation.
Follow ADA 30 MN and their Facebook page for information on our plans to meet again in person next year to celebrate 31 years of the ADA.
The Minnesota Council on Disability is committed to continuing the conversation on how the Americans with Disabilities Act works. We provide training, technical assistance and work with our partners to develop public policy that upholds this landmark civil rights law that leveled the playing field for people with disabilities.
