Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is a civil rights law that was enacted on July 26, 1990.  The ADA gives civil rights protections to individuals with disabilities similar to those provided to individuals on the basis of race, color, sex, national origin, age, and religion.  It guarantees equal opportunity for individuals with disabilities in public accommodations, employment, transportation, State and local government services, and telecommunications.
