The Americans With Disabilities Act was signed into law on July 26, 1990. This historic & life-changing law set the ball rolling fast & furious for our nation to become accessible to disabled people. The road to accessibility is not one that has an end, it is a road that runs parallel to life as we know it: as our society advances, so too must accessibility advance with it.
