KENTUCKY — The Americans with Disabilities Act was signed into law in the year 1990 by then-President George H.W. Bush with hopes to eliminate discrimination towards individuals with disabilities in all areas of public life, including transportation, schools, and in the workforce.

Charles Catherine is the Associate Director of Special Projects at the National Organization on Disability, and earlier this year, Catherine wrote an op-ed piece titled: Social distance, blindness, and coronavirus: How people with disabilities like me are adjusting.”

During this In Focus Kentucky segment, Catherine discusses the NOD’s mission and explains how the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 has personally impacted his life.
