The ADA is under attack!

The ADA Education and Reform Act of 2017 (H.R. 620) introduced by Rep. Ted Poe (R-TX) would seriously weaken the Americans with Disabilities Act. It would make it easier for businesses to continue to ignore the ADA.

We believe that it is important for Congress to hear the voices of many who oppose this legislation. It is imperative that your Representative be told to oppose H.R. 620 ADA Education and Reform Act of 2017. Click here to contact your lawmakers!
