Thirty-four years ago, in July of 1990, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was signed into law, enshrining and protecting the rights of people with disabilities throughout the country. The ADA has improved the lives of people with disabilities immensely, and that is worth celebrating!

You are enthusiastically invited to join us for The Mayor's Commission for Persons with Disabilities annual ADA Day Celebration on Boston City Hall Plaza! Come to celebrate and honor the rights of people with disabilities. There will be a speaking program with City officials, a disability resource fair with local organizations and programs, food, music, and free t-shirts (while supplies last — so get there early)
