Defending and expanding the rights of individuals with disabilities is one of the core civil rights priorities of the 21st century. Legislation was introduced that would undermine some of the most important measures that protect equal accessibility for individuals with disabilities. As the 115th Congress begins, and as Jewish Disability Awareness and Inclusion Month approaches, it is important to make our voices heard that no undermining changes should be made to the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
Urge your Member of Congress to oppose any legislation similar to the ADA Education and Reform Act (H.R. 620 in the 115th Congress/S. 3446 in the 114th Congress), legislation that would reverse the progress the ADA has ensured for over 25 years.
