    This July, states and organizations across the country commemorate the 30th Anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). While there is still much work to be done to achieve equal access for persons with disabilities, the State of Michigan has chosen to honor this important milestone by highlighting the accessible programs, services and activities our state has to offer. Throughout the ADA anniversary year, the state will host a series of virtual events designed to engage persons with disabilities, the organizations that serve them and the people who are part of their lives. Our mission is to connect with the disability community and re-establish our commitment to ensuring accessibility in 2020 and beyond.

    Show your support for ADA 30 virtual events and the Michigan disability community by sharing your stories on social media and using the hashtags #ADA30 and #MiADA30.

    Accessibility Information: All ADA 30 events hosted by the State of Michigan will include ASL interpreters and closed captioning services. Individuals who need additional accommodations for a specific event may contact the accommodation coordinator for the chosen event to make a request. Contact information for accommodation coordinators will be provided for each event at least 7 days prior to the scheduled date on our ADA 30 Virtual Events page.
