Americans with Disabilities Act: 21 years later

Sen. Tom Harkin: “Today, we mark the 21st anniversary of the signing of the Americans with Disabilities Act, landmark bipartisan legislation that has played a huge role in making our country more accessible, in raising the expectations of people with disabilities and their families about what they can hope to achieve at work and in life, and inspiring the world to view disability issues through a human rights frame and not simply through a medical or charity model.”
