On July 26th, 1990, the “Americans with Disabilities Act” (ADA) was signed into law. This was a landmark civil rights achievement. Throughout the month of July, you can help us celebrate this empowering moment. This year marks the 31st anniversary of the signing of the ADA.

Every day, people with disabilities overcome obstacles others can afford to overlook. Throughout the month of July, we will be helping them to #GetDECPA, and raise awareness of the importance of accessibility in their community. Together, we can create a more accessible and inclusive place to live, work and play!

We want to hear from our #DECPA community, and will reward you for participating.

1: Snap a photo of the accessible OR inaccessible location, tag the organization or business, along with what they already do great, or tell them what they could improve to be more accessible.

2: Tag us online using the handles below, and include the following hashtags:
#ADAAware #GetDECPA #ThanksToTheADA #ADA31
