Title II – ADA

Title II – ADA
In passing the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), Congress made several findings, including:

(1) physical or mental disabilities in no way diminish a person’s right to fully participate in all aspects of society, yet many people with physical or mental disabilities have been precluded from doing so because of discrimination …

(2) historically, society has tended to isolate and segregate individuals with disabilities, and, despite some improvements, such forms of discrimination against individuals with disabilities continue to be a serious and pervasive social problem;

(3) discrimination against individuals with disabilities persists in such critical areas as … recreation, and access to public services;

(5) individuals with disabilities continually encounter various forms of discrimination, including … failure to make modifications to existing facilities and practices …

(7) the Nation’s proper goals regarding individuals with disabilities are to assure equality of opportunity, full participation, independent living, and economic self-sufficiency for such individuals.
