Thanks to increased awareness raised by NDEAM and protections afforded by the ADA, our nation has made a great deal of progress in ensuring equal opportunities and access for people with disabilities in all aspects of life, including employment.
As we celebrate the 70th anniversary of NDEAM and the 25 th anniversary of the ADA, let's continue to work together to build upon the progress we've made.
As we continue to diversify our workforce, let us use this year's NDEAM
