We are sharing this post about the ADA today from @thisiscsd . This looks like an informative event! Check this out and Happy ADA Day!

Repost from @thisiscsd :

The passage of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was an historic event that changed the lives of deaf and disabled people forever. Today we celebrate the protections of the ADA and those who fought to procure them and continue to fight for a more equitable future for all. We’re celebrating by hosting a panel of experts to reflect on the past and look ahead toward the future. Register for this free event to learn how you can move beyond compliance and into true equity. Happy ADA Day!💙
