Dear Friend, I am excited to share updates on progress being made on behalf of our resilient community. We’ve launched a new donor exclusive series that delves deeper into advancements made as a direct result of your contributions. There has always been a heightened need for access to TS programs and offerings that support underserved areas across the US. In our current state, we have tripled offerings to ensure everyone – underserved or locally supported by a TAA Chapter or Support Group – can have the access that is so desperately needed.

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.
