The historic Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 was passed thirty-two years ago on July 26, 1990, and is a civil rights law that prohibits discrimination based on disability in the areas of employment, state and local government services, public accommodations, transportation, commercial facilities, and telecommunications.
