As ADA Turns 20, Advocates Say Still Work To Be Done

TOLEDO, Ohio -- Advocates for the disabled handed out wristbands at Owens Community College last week to mark Monday's 20th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act.
The wristbands read: "ADA: 20 Years Toward Equality."
The preposition was a conscious choice.
"We decided it couldn't say '20 years of' equality,' because there's still work to be done," said Sue Emerine, director of disability services at Owens. "There's still a lack of recognition, a lack of understanding."
