Throughout July, KOOP Radio is celebrating the 30th anniversary of the landmark passage of the Americans With Disabilities Act (or, the ADA).
The law prohibits discrimination against people with disabilities, in employment, transportation, public accommodations, communication, and access to federal, state, and local programs and services.
The ADA ensures that people with special needs have the same rights and opportunities as everyone else.
If you or someone you know has been denied services in the workplace or elsewhere, you can seek the protection of the ADA by going to ada.gov.
Please join KOOP in recognizing this historic equality law, and thank you to all those who support our community members with special needs.
