Americans with Disabilities Act: the education section says there will be an increase in civil rights enforcement
== Americans with Disabilities Act ==
[http://www.ada.gov The ADA] (Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990) is a federal civil rights law that is designed to keep disabled people from being discriminated against in jobs, business, and public programs, including education.[https://www.ada.gov/ada_intro.htm] Complaints about violations of the ADA are handled by the US Department of Justice's Civil Rights Division.[https://www.ada.gov/filing_complaint.htm]
 
===Trump/GOP Agenda===
Trump has proposed cutting funds for civil rights enforcement, which includes the ADA.[http://thehill.com/blogs/pundits-blog/the-administration/315318-trump-has-the-blueprints-to-build-a-better-on-budget] This '''could allow employers to discriminate against people with disabilities''' in the workplace, in [[Educational Justice|schools]], and in [[Housing / Infrastructure|housing]]. It could also deny people with disabilities reasonable accommodations.[http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/disability-rights-donald-trump_us_582487fae4b0e80b02cefa2f]
