Abstract

In the United States, there have been multiple laws and regulations that have been set to keep discrimination of people out of the country. However, there have been events where these laws have been put aside and strong opinions and biases were put forth. Using the UN SDG Goal Reduced Inequalities, it has become clear that there is still a fight that continues regarding Disability Rights in the United States. Disability Rights have been around for a very long time, and the implementation of those laws has taken an equally long amount of time. According to the ADA, the Americans with Disabilities Act prohibits discrimination towards citizens with certain disabilities in “employment, state and local government, public accommodations, commercial facilities, transportation, and telecommunication”(ADA). Along with this act, there have been many bills and laws that have been addressed in government. Unfortunately, many of these bills and laws have either only gotten through the Senate or the House of Representatives. It was also made out that many people with disabilities have had encounters with discrimination in the areas that have listed in the ADA. The overall point is that these laws are supposed to include people who are disabled, and not exclude them from living the normal life they deserve. From the research, there are still cases where those with disabilities are not receiving the inclusivity they need in several environments. Although these challenges are still there for the disabled, the community and the younger generation can help promote awareness in schools and places where the disabled are most discriminated against, especially in public facilities and environments.
