What We Do
We are the first ADA advocacy organization in South Florida which is directed solely by non-paid volunteers. Our original President, Edward S. Resnick, who passed away in 2003, was a retired member of the Bar and worked entirely pro-bono, overseeing the work of the various law firms (eight), consulting firms (five), and inspectors (one) whose services we presently engage.
Today, the organization is led by David New, a tireless advocate for the disabled. Even though the ADA was enacted in 1990, the civil rights of the disabled continue being systematically and freely violated. Most of the people with disabilities have lived quietly suffering the indignities foisted upon them.
Those public accommodations which haven’t complied will not do so unless something is done about it. Congress gave us the tool—let’s use it constructively together!
