Every other year, the Illinois Department of Human Services along with other state agencies and councils sponsor a statewide event to commemorate the passage of the Americans with Disabilities Act (“ADA”) of 1990. The anniversary celebration will highlight the accomplishments of people with disabilities. At the same time, the event seeks to recognize how state agencies and other organizations have worked to comply with this law, improving access to environments, programs, services and opportunities for people with disabilities. The entire event is free and accessible.
This year, we will be celebrating this important milestone on July 20, 2017 at the James R. Thompson Center, 100 W. Randolph St., Chicago, IL from 10am – 3pm. There will be free workshops for practitioners and job seekers on the ADA and resource tables that will provide information to the disability community. Through these efforts, we hope to further improve access for people with disabilities.

The workshops will also be held at the James R. Thompson Center between 10am – 3pm. Some workshops will be telecast to a Springfield site (see attached schedule). We ask that you register for workshops by completing the attached flyer and return it to the Bureau of Accessibility and Job Accommodations at 312/793-2406 (FAX) or e-mail: no later than Friday, June 30, 2017.
