About Us

We envision a world in which all people are accepted and valued for who and how they are: where all are welcomed with respect and given equal opportunities to contribute to the human experience.

The mission of The ADA Legacy Project is to honor the contributions of people with disabilities and their allies by:

  • preserving the history of the disability rights movement;
  • celebrating its milestones; and
  • educating the public and future generations of advocates.

Preservation, celebration, and education: this is how we will honor this historic civil rights legislation and create its legacy: a world in which every citizen is accepted for who they are.
