The bergenPAC Scoop – Marking the 30th Anniversary of ADA
Marking the 30th Anniversary of ADA
This Sunday celebrates the 30th anniversary of when the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was signed into law. Among other important protections, this ensures that people with disabilities are not discriminated against when visiting a public place like a restaurant or theater with standards for the facilities to accommodate their physical needs.
bergenPAC takes its ADA responsibility seriously as it ties into its nonprofit mission to make live performing arts and arts education more accessible to everyone. While the historic theater has certain limitations, bergenPAC’s staff strives to make everyone’s visit as comfortable as possible.
bergenPAC wants everyone to be able to enjoy its theater and The Performing Arts School so it proactively seeks out grants and other opportunities that will enable it to make its facilities even more ADA-compliant and welcoming in the future.
