July 26 Is ADA Day

ADA Day Proclaimed

OSWEGO – The Oswego County Legislature recently proclaimed July 26 as Americans with Disabilities Awareness Day to promote education about advocacy, resources and services available to county residents.

The Legislature’s Human Services Committee presented the certificate to members of Oswego ARISE.

The group works with communities to protect the 1990 Americans with Disabilities Act, which ensures that people of all levels of ability have access to services and employment, accommodations and transportation, and telecommunications.
