To celebrate 30 years of the Americans with Disabilities Act, we asked Googlers what the #ADA30 means to them. “Every school I’ve been allowed to attend, every job I’ve been accepted to, every time I have entered a room and been the first one like me to enter that room—I've had all these opportunities because my Disabled elders fought to ensure the #ADA.
