This year marks 27 anniversary of ADA – Americans with Disabilities Act. However, the House Judiciary Committee voted to advance H.R. 620 which is the ADA Education and Reform Act of 2017 – as explained on their website (where their video is not captioned, by the way).
Today is 27th anniversary of ADA – Americans with Disabilities Act. On the photo above is me giving a presentation last year about accessibility at a local event that happened to be on the anniversary of ADA. The slide on the photo says: “Good people do not need laws to tell them to act responsibly, while bad people will find a way around the laws.” It’s Plato’s quote and my favorite.
When hearing words “disability” and “accessibility”, the first thing that comes up in many people’s minds is a wheelchair or someone sitting in one. Many accessibility resources use a wheelchair icon as a symbol to represent accessibility.
