OUR STORIES: 25 Stories of the ADA (#7)

Our Stories Header-01

The month of July in 2015 marks the 25th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act.  All of us at DEC have been affected by the ADA and we plan on spending the whole month to celebrate it, wrapping up on July 24th with our ADA Celebration Picnic.

In honor of the 25 years of the ADA, we’ll be posting Our Stories every day – telling the stories of how the ADA has affected people individually.  Today we share our seventh story.

I appreciate the ADA because it levels the playing field – in regards to employment, housing, accommodations, etc. The ADA provides me with the opportunity to live in the community with my disability and not be excluded from activities based on my differences.”
