33rd Anniversary of The ADA

The 33rd Anniversary Celebration of The Americans with Disabilities Act took place in Albany on July 27th

Tibi Guzmán, Executive Director and CEO attended the historic celebration of the 33-year-old legislation of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) at The New York State Executive Mansion in Albany. It was an opportunity for many leaders and advocates to meet with Governor Kathy Hochul (shown above) and Chief Disability Officer Kimberly Hill to celebrate and share their commitment to ensure the rights of people with disabilities. Below are representatives from The Arc New York and chapter leadership.

For more than three decades, the ADA has been a driving force in moving America closer to the promise of equal opportunity, full participation, independent living, and economic self-sufficiency for the 61 million individuals with disabilities in our country. Because of the ADA and its protections against discrimination in public accommodations, employment, transportation, and community living, millions of people with disabilities have grown up with the promise of the same rights and chances as their peers without disabilities — and our communities, our economy, and our country are all stronger as a result.
