Celebrating the ADA at 25

Our Center celebrated the 25th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act with this tote bag.

A woman models the tote bag, which says, "Celebrating the ADA - 25 years and going strong." The Center's logo is beneath the slogan.

We distributed the tote at national and local events to spread the word about this landmark civil rights law.
