July marks the 31st anniversary of the signing of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). This sweeping civil rights legislation expanded on the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 that prohibits discrimination against people with disabilities by federally funded entities. The ADA covered all aspects of public life, prohibiting discrimination against people with disabilities in employment (Title I), state and local government services (Title II), public accommodations (Title III) and telecommunications (Title IV). Its provisions cover more than 56 million Americans, or the approximately 20 percent of the U.S. population, who have a disability.

Learn how FEMA and the National Council on Independent Living work to provide equity and support independence by integrating the needs of people with disabilities into emergency management planning.
