Americans with Disabilities Act
Signed on July 26, 1990, the ADA was the world's first comprehensive civil rights law for people with disabilities. The National Archives holds many records that provide insight into efforts over the past century to establish programs and to protect the rights of people with disabilities. This page presents a selection of these records from the holdings of the Presidential Libraries.
