Celebrate ADA30 - Themes & Resources

Throughout 2020, celebrate 30 years of progress in access & inclusion
— Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the ADA 30th Anniversary (July 26).

Voting Accessibility: Responsibilities and Rights

Check out this latest post for the ADA30 monthly theme of Voting Access on the ADA Anniversary website.

"Voting is one of the greatest, if not the greatest, rights and responsibilities that any person has in our democracy. It is important to ensure people can vote for candidates and initiatives of their choice, so that their voices and interests are represented.  The right to vote is something that many groups had to fight for and are still working to make sure those rights are ensured. This includes people with disabilities, who like other minority groups have been barred to vote or had restrictions or environmental barriers placed on them."

About the Author: Jason Harris is a Project Coordinator and Research Associate with Burton Blatt Institute (BBI) at Syracuse University. He holds a master’s degree in Cultural Foundations of Education and a Certificate of Advanced Disability Studies from Syracuse University. He is a person who is autistic, and his work focuses on issues related to supported decision making.
