What the ADA Means to Me

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) changed my life. It allowed me to feel the respect that I deserve, to feel protected by a non-discrimination policy. The underlying principles of the ADA have served as a blueprint for other strong enforceable disability rights laws throughout the world.

Disability rights activists throughout the world have adapted these principles and used them to create laws and policies that work in their own countries and cultures.

Summer 2021 "Access to Exchange" Externs Announced

We are pleased to announce our ten Access to Exchange Externs for Summer 2021. We are excited to share that this year's externs are exchange alumni of both inbound and outbound international exchanges. These externs will each be working on their own virtual outreach projects to promote the participation of people with disabilities in international exchange opportunities. Their projects will reach people with disabilities around the world in different languages in the form of blogs, webinar series, disability culture guides, and information hubs.
