Civil Rights, Voting Rights and Resources

July 26, 2010 marked the 20th Anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act. In celebration of this occasion, the ADA Wisconsin Partnership, through funding provided by the DBTAC Great Lakes ADA Center, was please to release a video "We Came Together: Wisconsin Reflects on 20 years of the Americans with Disabilities Act".

Tammy Liddicoat, Executive Director of Employment Resources Inc. indicated that the video was inspired by the idea that it took ALL disability groups coming together with a united message, to ensure the passage of the ADA.

Ms. Liddicoat said that "The video features overlapping clips from interviews with several disability advocates who, alongside hundreds of others in Wisconsin, played a part to advance civil rights for people with disabilities, promote the passage of the ADA and ensure ongoing awareness of ADA implementation".
