Looking Ahead: Later this month, America will celebrate the 30th anniversary of the signing of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). This landmark piece of legislation prohibits discrimination against, removes barriers, and promotes equal opportunity for millions of Americans with disabilities. The anniversary of the ADA also serves as an important reminder for public leaders in Broward County and our 31 municipalities. With virtual communications more prevalent than ever, we must be cognizant of residents with disabilities when communicating, and work to ensure accommodation of important information, so that all residents can understand and participate.
