What is the ADA?
The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 - or ADA -- is not a person, an organization, or an agency. The ADA is a federal law that gives civil rights' protections to individuals with disabilities similar to those provided to individuals on the basis of race, color, sex, national origin, age, and religion. It guarantees equal opportunity for individuals with disabilities in public accommodations, employment, transportation, State and local government services, and telecommunications.
It has been a long-standing City policy to provide equal services and opportunities to all its citizens and employees in accordance with federal, state, and county guidelines with regards to race, religion, national origin, age, sex, or disability. The City of Miami Beach is proud to have passed the State of Florida's first human rights ordinance prohibiting discrimination -- including discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation -- and providing for penalties upon conviction of the ordinance.
