Celebrate the Americans with Disabilities Act
20th Anniversary on July 26, 2010
The ADA gives civil rights protections to individuals with disabilities similar to those provided to individuals on the basis of race, color, sex, national origin, age, and religion. It guarantees equal opportunity for individuals with disabilities in public accommodations, transportation, employment, state and local government services and telecommunications.
An Excerpt from Rise Above
With the passage of the ADA, our customers were awarded unprecedented access to the world. We're happy to be partially responsible for providing that access, one BraunAbility product at a time. Here's a passage about accessibility and mobility from our CEO and founder Ralph Braun's autobiography:
"...the passage of the Americans with Disabilities Act--which celebrates its 20th anniversary in 2010---had an enormous impact on our company. Because of the unprecedented access the law provided for people with disabilities, more people than ever before sought solutions to their mobility needs. They got it through our paratransit vehicles and full-sized vans, but by far the biggest demand was for our Entervan, which came along at just the right time. As a result, newly empowered consumers asking for our Entervan flocked by the thousands to our dealers, who were more than happy to meet their needs."
