|Description/type of event (conference, monthly meeting, training, etc.):||
Coming Full Circle - Getting Back to the Original Intent of the ADA.|
19th Anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990.
Come celebrate with us! Speakers! Awards! Good Friends and Food!
Learn what's new with the ADA!
The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990
was intended to "provide a clear and comprehensive national mandate for the
elimination of discrimination against individuals with disabilities."
Unfortunately, since 1999, several U.S. Supreme Court and other lower court
decisions have significantly narrowed the definition of disability. The ADA
Restoration Act was passed nationally in 2007, but the Arizona ADA law needs
to come into alignment with the federal legislation. Join us in celebration
and help us kick off our campaign to do just that! It isn't a party without
