Protect Our Civil Rights

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is the nation’s strongest law protecting the civil rights of people with disabilities. It prohibits discrimination based on disability and guarantees equal access to public buildings and businesses. NDRN defends the ADA in Washington, DC while the Protection and Advocacy (P&A) Network enforces it in every state and territory.
