In the last several weeks we've seen a spike in outreach to the TAA encompassing stories related to workplace, housing and corporate discrimination. This is not something our community is unfamiliar with, but the national spotlight on similar topics reminds us that we must equip ourselves with knowledge. It is important to understand your rights and when they are being violated. Later this month is the 30th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). This landmark civil rights law extended the right for our community, and many others, to access public places, businesses, and to participate in the same everyday activities as other citizens. In celebration, there is a free webinar on July 29 highlighting workplace accommodations and disability rights which we hope you will attend.
