Saint George, UT – Red Rock Center for Independence (RRCI) in conjunction with Dixie State University (DSU)’s Disability Resource Center will be hosting a celebration in commemoration of the 25th Anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The ADA is an important milestone in the history of the disability rights movement and we want to celebrate it.
