Advocacy


 The Law

Individuals with disabilities are protected by primarily two laws; the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, specifically Section 504, and the Americans with Disabilities Act ADA of 1990. The Rehabilitation Act of 1973 was an expansion of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, Section 504 protects the rights of persons with disabilities in programs and activities that receive Federal financial assistance. Section 504 protects the rights not only of individuals with visible disabilities but also those with disabilities that may not be apparent.  The ADA further extended that protection to persons in private agencies and defined the nature of “a qualified individual with a disability.” According to the ADA, an individual with a disability is defined as “a person who has a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities, a person who has a history or record of such impairment, or a person who is perceived by others as having such impairment.”
