[Narrator:] On July 26th, 2020 the Americans with Disabilities Act will celebrate its 30th anniversary!
And we want you to celebrate with us and tell us your story.
How can you do that? It's very simple!
In a social media post, use any media of your choosing (video, pictures, written word, or other) to share how you are celebrating the anniversary.
Then post it on social media using #ADA30 or #ThanksToTheADA.
