AUCD Celebrates the 22nd Anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act, Urges Passage of Disability Treaty

Today, the Association of University Centers on Disabilities (AUCD)
joins many other disability organizations in celebrating the 22nd
anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and urges the
Senate to ratify the Convention on the
Rights of Persons with Disabilities. The ADA signifies the adoption of a
public policy committed to the removal of a broad range of impediments
to the integration of people with disabilities into society. The ADA
Anniversary is a time when we can reflect positively on a law that has
made a great impact on the lives of people with disabilities and our
country over the past 22 years.
