This is where the staff of the Reeve Foundation is sharing up-to-the-minute information and putting some context around the news affecting the spinal cord injury and paralysis community. Not to mention insight into what's going on here at the Foundation.
Feel free to comment and offer suggestions. We'll respond.
The Foundation's President and CEO, Peter Wilderotter (pictured), wrote a piece about the ADA that is appearing on the Huffington Post today:
Christopher Reeve said it best:
"Our nation cannot tolerate discrimination of any kind. That's why the Americans with Disabilities Act must be honored everywhere."
President George H.W. Bush put it this way: "Let the shameful wall of exclusion finally come tumbling down." He said these words exactly twenty years ago, on July 26, 1990, at the White House ceremony where he signed the ADA into law.
This week's 20th anniversary of the Americans With Disabilities Act is a legitimate cause for celebration. A large chunk of that shameful wall has indeed come tumbling down. And the ADA's vision is widely honored.
Yet considerable demolition work still remains to be done.
See what Peter cites as examples of the work that still needs to be done
