In Chicago, a network of more than 160 civic organizations, government agencies and businesses have come together to commemorate the American With Disabilities Act's 25th anniversary by committing to new programs and initiatives within their organizations.
July 26 marked the 25th anniversary of the ADA being signed into law.
Under ADA 25 Chicago, these local organizations are part of a Partners Network working together to fulfill the promise of the ADA. One of ADA 25 Chicago's legacy projects that is officially launching is The Leadership Institute for People with Disabilities. Other legacy initiatives include the newly re-established Chicagoland Business Leadership Network and The 25 for 25 Cultural Access Project ( which aims to make cultural experiences more inclusive and accessible for all guests ).
