The Road to Freedom
The Road to Freedom website at www.roadtofreedom.org documents the history that led to the passing of the Americans with Disabilities Act in 1990. To present this history to all fifty states and raise awareness of the ADA, participants have embarked on a nationwide tour giving press conferences, radio shows, and interviews; the site describes the group's journey. Here, visitors can view disability news articles; they can also sign the site's petition, contact officials elected to Congress, or sign up for the newsletter. In addition, the "Faces of Disability" section allows visitors to tell their own story about living with disabilities. The Road to Freedom also features a blog, store, and press room with current news and events. To learn more about this site and the Americans with Disabilities Act, visit www.roadtofreedom.org today.
