The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) will turn 24 on July 26th, 2014. The ADA, which was passed in 1990, marks a milestone in civil rights law that prohibits discrimination against people with disabilities in all areas of public life. The ADA ensures the rights and equality of persons with disabilities on the job, in school, in the community, in transportation and telecommunications and more.
