Join The Independence Center (The IC) for its annual Celebration Luncheon commemorating the 29th anniversary of the signing of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)
The Independence Center (The IC) hosts its annual Celebration Luncheon commemorating the 29th anniversary of the signing of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
This year's theme is "Advancing Disability-Friendly Health Care." Immediately following the luncheon, attendees are invited to stay for a 3-hour workshop on how people with disabilities can advocate for better health care.
Both events are free but reservations are required.
This is the fourth consecutive year The Independence Center, which is the local home of civil rights for people with disabilities, has celebrated the landmark legislation.
Signed into law by President George H.W. Bush on July 26, 1990, the ADA prohibits discrimination against people with disabilities and guarantees that they have equal opportunity to participate in American life, including employment, access to goods and services, and the ability to take part in State and local government programs and services.
Free and open to the public but reservations are required.
