Learn About the Capitol Crawl - A Story from the Passage of the ADA

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) turned 30 this year. Most people are aware of what the ADA is - you can watch my video on it, right here:

But one event that you may not know about is the Wheels of Justice Rally and Capitol Crawl that took place on March 12, 1990. On that day, hundreds of people with disabilities gathered to speak out against discrimination based on disability. The ADA was stalled from moving through Congress and so people from across the nation came to Washington D.C. to say “enough is enough.”

In this video, you will see people with disabilities get out of their wheelchairs and literally crawl up the steps of the capitol. I was in tears while watching this video.

Viewing it really put things into perspective for me. I am able to enjoy accessibility because of their activism and their bravery. It’s easy to forget how far we’ve come in just 30 years.

Take the time to watch this video. I promise it will put things in perspective for you, as it did for me.
