National Center for Civil and Human Rights

The National Center for Civil and Human Rights (NCCHR) is a 42,000 square foot facility in downtown Atlanta, Georgia that plans to open May 22, 2014. The Center is dedicated to exploring stories of civil and human rights throughout the world.

In 2012 NCCHR agreed to partner with The ADA Legacy Project to include the story of disability rights history and current issues. Since then, The ADA Legacy Project has worked closely with NCCHR to provide content  and advice on exhibits that address disability. The Project is also working with NCCHR to plan for additional exhibits and events in 2015 to correspond with the 25th anniversary of passage of the ADA. 

We will continue to provide periodic updates on NCCHR's progress and news of its grand opening. Stay tuned!
