Now is the time to celebrate 30 years of the ADA, the Americans with Disabilities Act. One thing I work on constantly is speaking up for myself and for other people with disabilities who may feel that they have been ignored for far too long. We ask that you assume that we are capable of being awesome! We are people with feelings, and we are capable of doing the same things that people without disabilities do. And sometimes we can even do it a little bit better!.
