On July 26, 1990, President George H. W. Bush signed into law the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) saying these words: “Let the shameful wall of exclusion finally come tumbling down.” One of the most important civil rights law to be enacted since the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the ADA prohibits discrimination against people with disabilities.
