What is Disability Justice?
We advocate civil rights -- Guaranteed by the US Constitution and the Americans with Disabilities Act.
Discrimination is wrong. Discrimination is illegal. Exclusion is wrong. Exclusion is illegal.
The Americans with Disabilities Act is civil rights law just like the Civil Rights Act of 1964. People with disabilities are citizens.
This year we celebrate 30 years of the ADA. The ADA is not a suggestion. The Americans with Disabilities Act is the law.
The ADA means affordable housing, universal healthcare, voting rights, public education, public transportation, workers' rights, Medicaid, Medicare, criminal justice reform, fair housing, and employment options.
Disability Justice means full inclusion in every part of society.
The ADA insures that people with disabilities are guaranteed ". . . the opportunity to blend fully and equally into the rich mosaic off the American Mainstream . . . We will not tolerate discrimination in America."
- George H W Bush, signing the ADA into law, 1990
