What is the ADA?
The ADA stands for the Americans with Disabilities Act. It is a comprehensive civil rights law passed in the United States in 1990. The ADA prohibits discrimination against individuals with disabilities in various areas of public life, including employment, transportation, public accommodations, and telecommunications.
The ADA aims to ensure equal opportunities, accessibility, and inclusion for people with disabilities. It provides legal protections and establishes requirements for businesses, government entities, and other organizations to make reasonable accommodations and remove barriers that may prevent individuals with disabilities from participating fully in society.
The ADA has had a significant impact on improving accessibility and promoting equal rights for individuals with disabilities in the United States. It has helped to create a more inclusive society by breaking down barriers and ensuring that people with disabilities have equal opportunities to participate in all aspects of public life.
