Yesterday marked the 25th anniversary of the passage of the American with Disabilities Act. The landmark legislation covers a wide range of civil rights issues for people with disabilities.

Disability advocates across the country celebrated the law’s quarter-century birthday this weekend, including some right here in the Lansing area.

Current State’s April Van Buren speaks with a few of them about the impact the ADA has had in our community in the past 25 years.
