The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) prohibits discrimination and ensures equal opportunity for persons with disabilities in employment, State and local government services, public accommodations, commercial facilities, and transportation. It also mandates the establishment of TDD/telephone relay services. Listen to five individuals who are intimately associated with the ADA as disabled persons, medical professionals, and advocates for the disabled as they talk about why it is working, and what more needs to be done.
