Find out what you should know about accessibility while enjoying music, face painting and a variety of vendors. 

The ADA was passed in 1990 to help secure the civil rights of people with disabilities and help protect them from being discriminated against because of their disabilities. The ADA also requires that all public places (like schools, restaurants, stores, offices, etc.) be made accessible to all and requires that employers provide reasonable accommodations to employees with disabilities. Organizations like RCIL work with individuals and communities to help ensure the promise of independence and freedom that is envisioned by passage of the ADA.
