July Diversity Statement
The month of July is packed with a multitude of diversity events from celebrating women to various religions. Here are two that stand out.
Thurgood Marshall (July 2nd):July diversity awareness month includes famed Supreme Court Justice and civil rights leader, and head of legal services for the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP). As an advocate of advancing civil rights for all Americans, Marshall used his time on the Supreme Court to move America forward. Marshall’s biggest accomplishment comes from the groundbreaking decision on the 1954 Supreme Court case of Brown vs. Board of Education, which ended racial segregation in public schools.
Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) (July 26th):
The ADA was signed into law in 1990, granting protection from discrimination to people with disabilities in areas of employment, transportation, and public accommodation. The law affords similar protections against discrimination to Americans with disabilities as the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which made discrimination based on race, religion, sex, national origin, and other characteristics illegal. Additionally, the ADA requires employers to provide reasonable accommodations to employees with disabilities, and imposes accessibility requirements on public accommodations.
