Disability Rights and Google Ad Campaign

Google Paints Stunning Portraits of Disability Rights Heroes on Washington, D.C., Steps

25th anniversary of ADA

Now, a new outdoor ad campaign from Google and 72andSunny marks the 25th anniversary of the landmark legislation by featuring painted portraits of key figures in the disability rights movement on the steps of major cultural buildings in Washington, D.C.
