     Road To Freedom Bus Stops: Purpose

1. To increase public awareness of the compelling history of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the people’s movement that is the disability rights movement.

2. To educate the general public, members of the disability community, and policymakers regarding unfulfilled promise of the ADA and the weakening of disability rights protections in the courts.

3. To mobilize members of the disability community and the mainstream public to take action, contact policymakers and the media, and build support for passage of the ADA Restoration Act.


The Road to Freedom is a yearlong, 50-State bus tour and photographic exhibit chronicling the history of the grassroots "people's movement" leading to passage of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
We are touring the United States to tell the story of the struggle for disability rights, past and present, and to promote educational and economic opportunity for children and adults with physical, mental, cognitive, sensory and developmental disabilities.
The Road To Freedom is a project of ADA Watch and the National Coalition for Disability Rights (NCDR).
