On July 28, 2016, the Department of Justice published “Beyond the Cases: 26 Years of the Americans with Disabilities Act, The Lives, Faces, and Stories Behind the ADA, ” an eight-page publication which provides brief case highlights and anecdotal stories of people with disabilities whose lives were changed by the Department’s ADA enforcement efforts. This document follows Principal Deputy Attorney General for the Civil Rights Division Vanita Gupta’s Tuesday’s blog marking the ADA’s 26th anniversary. In that blog, she wrote about the Department’s pivotal role in ensuring that the promise of the ADA is made real in the lives of people with disabilities throughout the country.
