The mobile museum will kick off its cross-country tour June 8, 2015 in Charlotte, NC. The DRMW provides a unique opportunity to learn the fascinating history of the disability rights movement. It presents an eye-catching exhibit that invites the visitor to participate in hands-on learning about the disability civil rights movement and the technological innovation as a result of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

About The ADA Legacy Project and Tour

The Tour is a traveling exhibit rolling across the country raising awareness and building excitement toward ADA25 – the 25th anniversary of the ADA. The ADA25 Legacy Tour is inspired by the historic 50- state journey taken by the husband-and-wife team of Justin and Yoshiko Dart in 1988 to garner grassroots support for the yet-to-be-passed Americans with Disabilities Act. http://www.roadtofreedom.net
