The CCA is a volunteer group dedicated to advocating for the interests of people with disabilities, raising awareness, and developing solutions to accessibility challenges. Established in 1990, the CCA advises the City of Bloomington on ADA implementation, which became federal law that same year. The ADA is a civil rights law that prohibits discrimination against individuals with disabilities in all areas of public life, including employment, education, transportation, and access to public places and events.
