Acosta, R. Alexander

  • “Nursing home residents deserve dignity and respect for their rights. When a county takes responsibility for the care of nursing home residents, it accepts responsibility to ensure that those residents' constitutional rights are protected.”

    R. Alexander Acosta, Assistant Attorney General
    Department of Justice Civil Rights Division

  • “Participation in civic life is a cornerstone of our democracy. The President has made clear our responsibility to open doors and allow opportunity for people with disabilities. We have been gratified by the cooperation these municipalities have given us and the steps they have taken to make their communities more accessible.”

    R. Alexander Acosta, Assistant Attorney General
    Department of Justice Civil Rights Division

  • “As a nation we can hardly aspire to equality under the law while preventing the physical appearance of [citizens with disabilities] before the law. Accessibility to civic facilities such as courthouses is essential to ensuring persons with disabilities full participation in our society.”

    R. Alexander Acosta, Assistant Attorney General
    Department of Justice Civil Rights Division
