A Major Milestone

This summer marks 30 years since a major milestone in our history—the signing of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The American Foundation for the Blind is celebrating the anniversary with a series of articles and conversations.

Our Commitment

We grieve for Breonna Taylor, George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, and so many others. We join with our colleagues in the civil rights community in calling on all levels of our government to commit to substantive and meaningful reform. And we commit to examining our own practices, and living our values, every day, to build a world of no limits for all.
