Today marks the 30th Anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act!
The ADA was signed into law on this day in 1990 by President George H.W. Bush. This important civil rights law prohibits discrimination against individuals with disabilities in all areas of public life, including jobs, schools, transportation, and all public and private places that are open to the general public. The purpose of the law is to make sure that people with disabilities have the same rights and opportunities as everyone else.
We still have a ways to go - but let's celebrate how far we've come!
This Father's Day we want to send a big thank you to the fathers, grandfathers, godfathers, uncles - biological or otherwise - who look out for all the extra special kids out there. Your love, support, and guidance make a huge difference in their lives. Advocating, hospital stays, endless doctors visits, and countless medicine measurements are no easy task but you guys make it look good. Our families rely on your love and support so, thank you.
The TBC1D24 Foundation is excited to announce new partnerships with the Epilepsy Foundation of America's Epilepsy Health Learning System (EHLS) and the Rare Epilepsy Network (REN) - read more about our involvement on our blog.
