Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)
Over 56 Million people have a disability in the United States. These are everyday people or their children, who live each day with one or more sensory, physical or mental disability.
Their goal is to be afforded the same reasonable opportunities that everyone else has. The Americans with Disability Act covers them and their families protecting them from discrimination in all areas of public life, including jobs, schools, transportation, and all public and private places that are open to the general public.
Discrimination against people with disabilities can range from overt acts to exclude to more subtle unwillingness to make reasonable accommodations to facilities or procedures to allow equal access and participation for people with disabilities (PWD). Even the placement of a paper towel dispenser in a restroom can make all the difference.
