Celebrating the 30th Anniversary of the ADA
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) celebrated its 30th anniversary on Sunday, July 26 and TVS dedicated this past week to celebrating the law by sharing information through a social campaign on our Facebook page.
The ADA is a civil rights law that prohibits discrimination against individuals with disabilities in all areas of public life, including jobs, schools, transportation, and all public and private places that are open to the general public. It was signed into law by George H.W. Bush in 1990.
This law has paved the path for individuals with disabilities in our workforce.
The week-long social media campaign on Facebook offered key facts about the ADA, quotes from TVS employees reflecting on ‘what the ADA means to them,’ and external links to learn more information.
TVS also had their two social media quotes shared on the SourceAmerica website as part of a collaborative article where multiple NPAs reflected on memories and the importance of ADA over the past 30 years.
We invite you to also read more stories celebrating the ADA at the NC Council on Developmental Disabilities website.
