New York State Bar Association President Scott M. Karson issued the following statement today marking the 30th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act.
“Thirty years ago, the Americans with Disabilities Act gave people with disabilities the rights to equal access, opportunity and employment, leading our society to become more inclusive. Now is a great opportunity to recognize the importance of ensuring inclusive environments for New Yorkers with disabilities.”
“This anniversary is a reminder that in our effort ‘to form a more perfect union,’ we need to fight for the rights of all disenfranchised communities. The New York State Bar Association remains committed to upholding principles and values that promote inclusion, advocacy and opportunity for all New Yorkers.”
