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.
The Disability Integration Project
The Disability Integration Project of Atlanta Legal Aid Society has created this website in collaboration with our partners and funders to be a place for everyone to learn about the Olmstead decision. The website also provides resources and information for self-advocates, family and friends of people with disabilities, and legal advocates alike.
