TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW)-- An organization that has built its name on fighting for those with disabilities, celebrated a major milestone.

The Topeka Independent Living Resource Center celebrated the 24th Anniversary of the passage of the Americans with Disabilities Act.

The law prohibits discrimination and ensures equal opportunity for persons with disabilities.

Topeka Mayor Larry Wolgast proclaimed July 25th, the American with Disabilities Act Anniversary Day and organizers say they're grateful for the cities recognition.

"We appreciate the corporate city acknowledging the Americans with Disabilities Act and its importance and also acknowledging our involvement over many years with the city, with disability rights and accessibility," Mike Oxford.

Oxford says last year, Topeka was acknowledged as one of the most accessible communities in the country.
