July marks the 25th anniversary of the Americans With Disabilities Act. The ADA was the world’s first comprehensive declaration of equality for people with disabilities. This is a time to reflect positively on a law that has made a great impact on the lives of people with disabilities and our country over the past 25 years.

The law’s intent – “to assure equality of opportunity, full participation, independent living, and economic self-sufficiency for individuals with disabilities” – is what Goodwill’s mission strives to provide for many of the individuals that we proudly serve through our vocational job training programs.
