I am a husband, father, son, brother, uncle and friend. I believe in sharing my talents and experiences by giving back to the community by giving my time to coaching, church and especially to the disability community. I truly believe that all men and women are created equally.
From the US Department of Justice
This week marks the thirteenth anniversary of the Supreme Court’s decision inOlmstead v. L.C., where the Supreme Court recognized that the civil rights of people with disabilities under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) are violated when they are unnecessarily segregated from the rest of society. The promise of Olmstead is that people with disabilities will have the opportunity to live like people without disabilities – to have friends, work, be part of a family, and participate in community activities. As the Department of Justice commemorates the anniversary of the Olmstead decision and reaffirms our commitment to its enforcement, we are pleased to present “Faces ofOlmstead,” a website profiling stories of some of the thousands of people whose lives have been impacted by the Olmstead decision and the Department’s enforcement efforts.
To learn more about the Olmstead decision and the Civil Rights Division’s enforcement activities, please visit our Olmstead: Community Integration for Everyone website. For more information about the ADA, you may call our toll-free ADA Information Line at 800-514-0301 or 800-514-0383 (TDD), or access the ADA Website at www.ada.gov.
