  1. The Obama Administration continually strives to ensure compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Furthermore, they recently announced new actions that will help improve the plight of people with disabilities. Such actions are aimed at expansion of opportunities and improving the lives of the disabled in our country. In particular, these announcements focus on educational opportunity, high quality education, civic and community participation, health care and healthy living, fair housing, accessible transportation, and information and communications technology. Celebration of the ADA includes a festival hosted by the Smithsonian Museum of American History, enlightening various federal agencies about educational aspects regarding the ADA, employment opportunities for disabled persons, as well as historical aspects of the disability rights movement. Furthermore, the White House will be hosting various events “celebrating the ADA and the past, present, and future of the disability rights movement.” President Barack Obama and his Administration’s actions and efforts described herein, reflect genuine concern for the equality of everyone in our country, and address the special needs of our country’s disabled.
