Twelve Years of Accessibility

Or at least, “twelve years of a government act intended to bring about accessibility.” The Americans with Disabilities Act was passed twelve years ago today, despite the efforts of iron-hearted “compassionate conservatives” and the mockery of commentators content to cash in on a cheap laugh at the expense of blind or deaf or wheelchair-bound jobseekers. We have a long way to go (I know this blog isn’t accessible), but we can no more afford to ignore the exclusion based on mobility or audition or visual perception than we can on the basis of race or religion or affection. We mustn’t stop now.
