July 26, 2020 is the 30th Anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act, a groundbreaking civil rights law that was written to address rampant systemic discrimination against disabled people in all areas of life. Many positive changes have resulted from the Americans with Disabilities Act and at the same time it is apparent that there is still much to be done. This act has been under attack since its creation and great disparities and barriers remain to this day for all disabled people even more so for those who are also BIPOC (Black, indigenous, people of color), experiencing poverty and/or homelessness, and/or LGBTQIA.
In honor of this anniversary Saint Paul Public Library has gathered some resources to share including links to talks, celebrations, articles, websites, and more.
Some other books that may be of interest are: Disability Visibility, From the Periphery, All the Weight of Our Dreams, and QDA.
