It’s hard to believe that the Americans with Disabilities Act was signed into law 24 years ago by President George H.W. Bush. Shortly before the Act was passed, activists with physical disabilities met in front of the Capitol Building. They shed their crutches, wheelchairs, power chairs, and other devices and immediately proceeded to crawl and pull their bodies up all of the 100 front steps of the Capitol without warning! As the activists did so many of them chanted, “ADA Now!” and “Vote Now!”. These activists were called the “Capitol Crawlers”. Jennifer Keelan, a second grader from Denver with cerebral palsy was videotaped as she pulled herself up the steps, using mostly her hands and arms, saying “I’ll take all night if I have to!”. This direct action is reported to have “inconvenienced” several senators and to have pushed them to approve the act.
