Don't Pass A Bill That Excludes People With Disabilities

Congress is set to vote on legislation that would add new burdens to the lives of people with disabilities and badly weaken the Americans with Disabilities Act. The House of Representatives is voting this week on this cruel bill, H.R. 620, and we need to stop it before it can make its way to the Senate and get signed into law by President Trump.

Congress: Don't Pass A Bill That Excludes People With Disabilities
Dear Senator,

As your constituent, I urge you to vote against H.R. 620, the so-called ADA Education and Reform Act of 2017. If passed, it will be a massive rollback for the civil rights of people with disabilities who want access to local businesses. The disingenuous arguments for this bill rely on a relatively small number of frivolous lawsuits. In truth, this bill would only serve to dissuade businesses who might otherwise make access improvements to their facilities and services.

H.R. 620 is unnecessary and disingenuous - it doesn't fix the real problems, and it could do real harm to people with disabilities. We've come too far to turn back the clock to days when people with disabilities were excluded from society and couldn't live full lives.

Sincerely,

[First Name] [Last Name]
