This past Sunday, July 26, people across the country celebrated the 25th Anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Here in Chicago, the Trust is supporting a year-long initiative called ADA 25 Chicago—a network of more than 160 partner organizations leveraging this milestone anniversary to increase access and inclusion for people with disabilities through substantive new projects and initiatives.
