The weekend of July 24-26 brings nation-wide celebrations of the 25th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act. President George H.W. Bush signed the ADA into law on July 26th, 1990, capping decades of legal efforts and activism to end discrimination against people with disabilities. The Smithsonian is partnering with the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts in producing a range of activities to mark this historic moment and highlight the ADA’s on-going legacy in American life.

Two of IHCD's team will be participating in sessions: Valerie Fletcher, Executive Director and Eli Wolff, Direct of Inclusive Sports.
