About the Holiday

Disability Independence Day marks the anniversary of the signing of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) on July 26th, 1990. The signing of the ADA provides protection from employment discrimination as well as better access to goods, services and communications for people with disabilities. As a result, people with disabilities have had more opportunity to increase their independence. This holiday celebrates the big step forward taken in 1990 as well as serving to remind us to continue to strive for equal opportunity and access to all Americans.
