Celebrate 25 years of the ADA.

Sunday, March 22nd, 2015

Gene was fortunate enough to meet up with our friends from Amerigroup at the ADA25 celebration, March 3rd at the Bob Bullock Museum. Unfortunately, Dave was under the weather and couldn’t attend. Amerigroup has long been a good friend of The Gene and Dave Show as well as other disability related programs. Thanks Amerigroup!

Jadah, Gene, and Roger

Gene is sandwiched between Roger De Leon and Jadah Navarro. Both are Amerigroup community relations reps.

We were all there to celebrate 25 years since the ADA was signed (actually, it was signed into law July 26, 1990). Lex Frieden, the architect of the ADA, was there.

Those of us wearing red, white and blue lanyards holding a medallion, are recognized by our peers as Trailblazers, someone very involved in the passage and/or implementation of the ADA.
