DOJ Blog: Furthering the Promise—The ADA Mediation Program
This year marks the 30th anniversary of President George H.W. Bush signing into law the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), landmark civil rights legislation establishing a national mandate for the elimination of discrimination against individuals with disabilities. Throughout the year, the Division is publishing blog posts to highlight the impact that our recent ADA enforcement efforts have made in people’s everyday lives and to honor the individuals that brought those matters to our attention. We celebrate the many ways in which the ADA has transformed American society and enabled a generation of Americans with disabilities to thrive. At the same time, we recognize that too many barriers to equal opportunity remain. We recommit to our work of making the promise of the ADA a reality, enabling all Americans with disabilities to achieve their dreams and reach their full potential.
For more information on the ADA, please call the toll-free ADA Information Line at 800-514-0301 (TDD 800-514-0383) or visit ADA.gov.
