Our goals are:
To encourage the collection of historical materials related to the disability rights movement and to connect efforts to preserve, promote, and exhibit materials from the disability rights movements.
To coordinate activities for the ADA25 Anniversary in 2015.
To promote the development and use of educational curricula that raises awareness of the history, contributions, and issues still facing people with disabilities, and promotes involvement in advocacy.
The disability community is a thriving network of individuals and organizations who are actively involved in many of these initiatives. As such, the role of The ADA Legacy Project is simply to connect, coordinate and communicate these efforts. In other words, we will serve as a clearinghouse.
As a clearinghouse our focus is on developing partnerships with those individuals and organizations who are working to preserve, celebrate, and educate. You will see our growing list of partners throughout this site.
