While not as historic as the Civil Rights era legislation of the Fair Housing Law, the American with Disabilities act has changed our society.  Curb cuts and making buildings accessible to those with mobility challenges is historic.  Activists are celebrating this important law in our society.  Still waiting for all the shelters to be ADA compliant, but we should still celebrate this law.
