Where the World Gathers to Celebrate Every Day

NATIONAL DISABILITY INDEPENDENCE DAY – July 26

NATIONAL DISABILITY INDEPENDENCE DAY

National Disability Independence Day is celebrated each year on July 26.  This day commemorates the anniversary of the signing of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) on July 26th, 1990.

The Americans with Disabilities Act provides protection from employment discrimination as well as better access to goods, services and communications for people with disabilities.

“At the signing of the Americans with Disabilities Act July 26, 1990, President George Bush stated, “Three weeks ago we celebrated our nation’s Independence Day. Today we’re here to rejoice in and celebrate another ‘Independence Day,’ one that is long overdue. With today’s signing of the landmark Americans for Disabilities Act, every man, woman and child with a disability can now pass through once-closed doors into a bright new era of equality, independence and freedom.”

HAPPY NATIONAL DISABILITY INDEPENDENCE DAY
