Around the country, in late July and into August, the community celebrated the 20th Anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act.

From parades and marches to tributes, people everywhere reflected on the law's achievements and looked forward to the work that still needs to be done.

On July 26, President Obama hosted a celebration at the White House. The celebration included a speech from Access Living's Marca Bristo. Twenty years ago, Marca helped organize legislative and public support for passage of the landmark legislation.

In addition to Marca, about 10 other Access Living staff and board members attended the celebratory event.
