Americans with Disabilities Act Day

 

PIERRE, S.D. – Gov. Dennis Daugaard has proclaimed July 26 Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Day in South Dakota.

 

The ADA prohibits discrimination against people with disabilities in employment, transportation, public accommodations, commercial facilities, telecommunications, and state and local government services.

 

“The ADA has helped our state and nation to develop and promote the equal opportunity, independence and full participation of people with disabilities within our state,” said South Dakota Department of Human Services Cabinet Secretary Gloria Pearson.

 

Celebratory town events from public mayoral proclamations, socials, drives and picnics will continue throughout the month.

The proclamation coincides with the 28th anniversary of the signing of the ADA by President George H.W. Bush in 1990.
