30th Anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act

Celebrating the ADA's 30th Anniversary and its Continued Impact on Georgia - Archived Webinar and Transcripts
 

During this one-hour webinar the 30th anniversary for the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was celebrated! The ADA was signed into law on July 26, 1990. The ADA is a civil rights law that prohibits discrimination against individuals with disabilities, and represents one of the most impactful and far-reaching pieces of legislation ever created for people with disabilities.
 
In both the letter and the spirit of the ADA, progress continues to be made in Georgia and across the country to provide equal opportunities in the areas of public life, including jobs, schools, transportation, and all public and private places that are open to the general public.
 
In this webinar, several organizations across Georgia and their respective initiatives to improve both the access and quality of life of people with disabilities were highlighted. Representative organizations in this webinar included the State ADA Coordinator’s Office, Georgia Department of Corrections, Georgia Department of Driver Services, the University System of Georgia and its continued commitment toward the Galileo application available to all Georgians, and the Center for Inclusive Design and Innovation.
