The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) has unveiled a disability historical timeline called "Advancing Equal Access to Opportunity" as a start to its celebration of the 25th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The timeline highlights the laws related to disability employment from 1920 to the present.
In addition to the timeline, DOL is featuring personal stories submitted by workers with disabilities who have been affected by the ADA in their lives and careers. Meredith Ausenbaugh, an intern at DOL, has written a blog on "3 Things You Can Do to Celebrate 25 Years of the ADA," including submitting your own story to be shared on the site.
