1990: The Year a Federal Law Changed Everything! Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) at 30

We all know that no one is defined by a disability. And thankfully, the drafters of the Americans with Disabilities Act, or the ADA know that as well.

President George HW Bush called individuals with disabilities a resource of untapped human potential when he signed the ADA on July 26, 1990. This landmark legislation ensures equal access to education, housing and employment, breaking down barriers and building inclusive communities.

Featured Member Agency: The Corporate Source.

Like so many organizations in NYSID’s membership, The Corporate Source(TCS) has diligently provided critical essential services throughout the New York metropolitan region, thanks to the hard work of individuals with disabilities TCS actually increased its scope of work to include COVID-19 level disinfecting services in addition to its existing range of janitor services.

TCS cleans and disinfects more than seven million square feet daily Its NYSID custodian customers include the NYC Human Resources Administration, the NYS Departments of Transportation, Motor Vehicles and Labor, the Pery B.
