Civil Rights Complaint

ADA and Civil Rights

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was enacted in 1990 to ensure people with disabilities have the same opportunities as everyone else to participate in all aspects of American life. Modeled after the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, or national origin, the ADA is an equal opportunity law for people with disabilities. The ADA prohibits discrimination based on disability.

Under the law, the City of El Mirage strives to assure its services, programs, and activities are readily accessible and usable by qualified persons with disabilities. The City will reasonably modify practices, policies and procedures to ensure participation is afforded to everyone. The City of El Mirage invites and welcomes people of all abilities to use our services, programs, and activities.

Need a modification?  Please submit a request for an accommodation or contact the department or program you want to access.
