25 years ago, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990 was passed into law. This historical civil rights law paved the way for accessibility for all people with disabilities including deaf/hard of hearing individuals. It is because of the ADA that deaf/hard of hearing individuals are given the fundamental right to interpreters, closed-captioning, telecommunication services (i.e. Video Relay Services) to name a few. While we still have more work to do, we take this moment to reflect and celebrate this important historical law.
