Equal Opportunities for People with Disabilities

Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act

What is the Americans with Disabilities Act?
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990 is a comprehensive civil rights law that Congress enacted to end discrimination against people with disabilities. It guarantees equal opportunities for people with disabilities in:

  • Employment.
  • Public accommodations.
  • Transportation.
  • State and local government services.
  • Telecommunications.

Title II of the ADA requires the City of Seattle to provide people with disabilities an equal opportunity to access City services, programs and activities.

Visit the Notice Under the Americans with Disabilities Act page for more information.

You have the right to live free of discrimination based on a disability.

If you have a question for, a request of or an issue with the City of Seattle under ADA Title II, please contact Autumn Harris, the City of Seattle's ADA coordinator.

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the Washington State Law Against Discrimination (49.60) prohibit state and local government agencies from discriminating against people with disabilities. In addition, the City of Seattle must provide reasonable modifications to existing policies, practices and procedures to ensure equal access to programs and services. For example, allowing people with disabilities to be accompanied by their service animals onto premises where animals are usually prohibited is a reasonable modification of policy and practice.

If you feel that the City of Seattle has failed to accommodate your disability or provide you with equal access to a City activity, program or service, you have a few options:
