** The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) is a law that was enacted by the U.S. Congress in 1990. The ADA is a wide-ranging civil rights law that prohibits discrimination based on disability. It affords similar protections against discrimination to Americans with disabilities as the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
Enjoy your day, Yareah friends. Art is everywhere and up to you!
