On July 26, 1990 the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was signed into law. The ADA, as it is known, is a wide ranging civil rights law that prohibits, discrimination based on recognized disabilities. This law extended the same protections against discrimination of the fifty-year-old Civil Rights Act to those with “…a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits a major life activity.”

The anniversary of the Stonewall Riots is an important part of recognizing the efforts of LGBT activists in their fight for equality in the U.S. On June 28th, 1969 the modern gay rights movement was sparked by a Police raid on a gay bar called the Stonewall Inn in Greenwich Village in New York City. Patrons who’d grown tired of relentless persecution by Police rose up and began spontaneous and violent riots that lasted several days. These riots galvanized the community and were the catalyst for the formation of the some of the very first LGBT rights organizations. A year later in Chicago, Los Angeles and New York marches planned to commemorate the anniversary of the Stonewall riots evolved into what we now know as Gay Pride Parades. Today, June is recognized as LGBT Pride month around the world in recognition of those bar patrons who launched a civil rights movement 45 years ago this month.
K-O-O-P is recognizing this anniversary as one of its Celebration Events with special News and Public Affairs and music programming. Listen in for this unique programming from K-O-O-P, radio for people, not for profit.
