"Laws like the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the Individuals with Disabilities in Education Act (IDEA) happened because hundreds of thousands of persons with disabilities all over the country realized that we were being discriminated against and there were no laws to protect us. Each person worked in her or his own way to make these laws happen, and the combined effort brought success. Now we have the responsibility to work in our own ways to make these laws work for us or for our loved ones."
