The article presents information on the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990. ADA was declared the 20th Century Emancipation Proclamation for people with disabilities by Senator Tom Harkin. Fifteen years later, almost everyone who cares to know is familiar with ADA's basic intent. ADA took years of powerful persuasion on numerous fronts simply to prohibit discrimination in employment, transportation, public accommodations, activities of state and local governments, and telecommunications.
