It was a beautiful day on the South Lawn of the White House, in July 2010, much like the day the ADA was signed, when I witnessed seeing President Barack Obama sign executive order 13548. This executive order charged the federal government with hiring 100,000 people with disabilities over the next five years. People with disabilities have faced barriers to employment for so long and even the Americans with Disabilities Act did not succeed in moving that needle.
