Looking ahead: July 26 commemorates the 32nd anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act. On this day in 1990, our nation implemented the necessary changes needed to protect the basic civil rights of over 15% of Americans by providing equal access to participate in programs, services and activities provided by municipalities. Over the past three decades, under this law, Broward’s 31 cities have embraced the guiding principles of the ADA. Today, we continue to ensure that the modification of policies and procedures provide the necessary support for individuals with disabilities to live, work and play independently throughout our ONE Broward community.
