KALAMAZOO, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A local community is coming together to celebrate the 24th anniversary of a historic piece of legislation.

It was 24 years ago, on July 26, that President George H.W. Bush signed the Americans with Disabilities Act into law.

Since then, it has opened up accessibility and opportunities for people with disabilities.

Friday, the Disability Network of Southwest Michigan is inviting everyone to join them for free food and education at its Kalamazoo office.

"When we look at access to restaurants, hotels, all of these places, we have seen changes," said Disability Network of Southwest Michigan CEO Joel Cooper. "There are business owners that are wanting to be inclusive to every person in their business."

The celebration is Friday from 11:30 to 1:30 p.m., at 517 E. Crosstown Parkway in Kalamazoo.
