History of Federal Legislation
The civil rights movement of the 1960s inspired the subsequent disability rights movement that greatly influenced the legislation of the 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s. These new laws prohibited discrimination against people with disabilities and provided access to education, places of public accommodation, telecommunications, and transportation.
