Olmstead is the most important U.S. Supreme Court decision for people with disabilities. The 1999 Supreme Court decision was based on the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). This website provides Olmstead stories in its "I am Olmstead" pages, self-help tools and resources, and legal advocacy tools. The website was created by the Atlanta Legal Aid Society, Inc. in partnership with the National Disability Rights Network and funded by a Technology Initiative Grant (TIG Grant) from the Legal Services Corporation (LSC). The purpose of the website is to provide resources and information about the Olmstead v. LC Supreme Court decision.
VISIT THE ADA LEGACY PROJECT
The ADA Legacy Project partnered with individuals and organizations around the country to celebrate the Americans with Disabilities Act. The ADA Legacy Project works to
- preserve the past of the disability rights movement,
- celebrate the present by honoring the milestones and accomplishments of the disability rights movement, and
- educate the public by raising awareness of the "history, contributions, and issues" that still face people with disabilities in order to create a brighter future.
