ADA: Landmark Declaration of Equality for Americans with Disabilities
The Americans with Disabilities Act is such a law.”
“Most importantly, ADA is a landmark commandment of fundamental human morality. It is the world’s first declaration of equality for people with disabilities by any nation. It will proclaim to America and to the world that people with disabilities are fully human; that paternalistic, discriminatory, segregationist attitudes are no longer acceptable; and that henceforth people with disabilities must be accorded the same personal respect and the same social and economic opportunities as other people.
ADA opens the doors of opportunity for millions of isolated dependent Americans to become employees, taxpayers and welcome participants in the life of their communities. It prepares the way for the emancipation of more than half a billion of the world’s most oppressed people.”
“I believe that well will unite to fulfill that responsibility. Because I believe in you, the patriots of ADA. And I believe in you, the patriots to be.
Together we have overcome. Together we shall overcome.”
