Let's not roll back protections for people with disabilities – Asheville Citizen-Times

From Disability Rights NC
Nineteen years ago, on July 26, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) became law. This landmark civil rights legislation removed barriers to participation in community life for people with disabilities. Whether the barriers are driven by policy, architectural design, communication or attitudes, the ADA is intended to guarantee people with disabilities equal opportunity and protections to which all U.S. citizens are entitled. These are rights which citizens without disabilities already enjoy.
