The Americans with Disabilities Act 25th Anniversary

#ThrowbackThursday We are celebrating 25 years since the passing of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)! To honor this historic event, we are sharing some of the original campaign posters. They may look dated, but their message is a strong as ever. Join us by sharing and telling us what the ADA means to you.


Nationally, Easterseals has been active in public policy advocacy since our founder, Edgar Allen, lobbied the Ohio Legislature to fund appropriate services for children with disabilities in the 1920s. We have worked with federal, state and local officials and agencies since then to advocate for laws and programs that help people with disabilities achieve independence. Children and adults with disabilities disproportionately rely on government programs in order to access education, health care, housing, transportation and employment services. Easterseals continues to actively support and promote federal legislation that helps people with disabilities achieve independence.
