ADA30

By Joey Perotti

Tuesday, July 28

This week we are celebrating the 30th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). One in five people in the United States lives with a disability — some visible, others less apparent, but all are underrepresented in media and popular culture.

The #DisabilityVisibility Project has published a book of essays by Disabled People of Color, Disability Visibility: First Person Stories from the 21st Century (edited by Alice Wong), that examines what the law has and hasn’t done for this often overlooked group.
