Justice Department Highlights 28 Years of the Americans with Disabilities Act

July 27, 2018
Source: U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ)

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), enacted 28 years ago this month, reaffirmed our nation’s commitment to ensuring that people with disabilities have the right to live, work, and fully participate in the community alongside their fellow citizens. The Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division, along with U.S. Attorneys’ Offices across the country, enforces the ADA to realize the statute’s goals. This work includes ensuring equal opportunity, full participation, independent living, and economic self-sufficiency for the 56 million Americans currently living with disabilities. The examples highlighted in this document reflect only part of the Department’s work over the last year to further the objectives of the ADA.
