City elected officials and business leaders gathered Friday to mark the 25th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act by launching a broad new initiative to promote physical access and employment opportunities for those with disabilities.The Chicago Community Trust is lead sponsor of ADA 25 Chicago, and has given a grant of $1 million to get the project going.

“The ADA recognizes disability as a natural part of the human experience, as people with disabilities are our family, neighbors, teachers, lawyers and public officials,” Terry Mazany, president and CEO of The Chicago Community Trust, said in a statement following the launch event.
