Every year, Access To Independence recognizes the anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act. Since its passage on July 26, 1990, this landmark legislation has helped increase access and opportunities for people with disabilities across our country. It also serves as an important reminder of the advocacy work that still needs to be done to reach a future that is truly accessible for everyone. The pandemic prevented us from celebrating the ADA’s historic 30th anniversary in person with all of you, so we are making up for it this year! ATI will be hosting an Open House style event on Monday, July 26 from 1-4PM at our office on 26 N Main Street in Cortland. This year’s ADA Celebration will feature: - Opening remarks from Assemblymember Anna Kelles - Parking lot ice cream social - Film screening by Ben Ackley, ATI intern - Frances A. Pizzola remembrance ceremony - Telehealth site Grand Opening & demonstrations - Accessibility Modification Program demos - And more!
