ADA 25th Anniversary Celebration

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) became a law on July 26, 2015. Join NCCDD and its statewide partners as we come together to celebrate the passage of the law that promotes equal opportunities and access for people with disabilities. NCCDD, along with state agencies and partners, will host a celebration in Raleigh to commemorate the landmark legislation.

Join the Council for the Triangle Access Awards, hosted by the Alliance of Disability Advocates, to recognize those in the Greater Triangle Area who are doing their part to break down barriers for the disability community. RSVP at info@nccdd.org
