Talkaphone celebrates the 23rd anniversary of the ADA

Nov 29, 2001 | Post by Talkaphone

Last week we celebrated the 23rd anniversary of the passing of the Americans with Disabilities Act. President George H.W. Bush signed the ADA into law on July 26th, 1990, banning discrimination against Americans with disabilities and providing them with new-found opportunities to live fulfilling and productive lives.

Talkaphone has long supported the adoption of this monumental legislation at colleges and universities, and also worked with organizations such as IACLEA to help educate U.S. Congressional members and staff on the importance of continued support for modernization of campus security to comply with the ADA and other mandates. In 1991 we became the first company in the world to introduce an ADA-compliant emergency phone, shortly after the ADAAG’s were issued.

Today, we take this historic achievement for granted. But it wasn’t until the ADA went into effect that people with disabilities were given equal access to security communication on campuses. Talkaphone is proud to be a part of this victory and to this day we continue to support many campus security associations as well as the ongoing fight for equal rights for the disabled.
