MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- It's been 31 years since the start of the Americans with Disabilities Act signed into law by George H.W. Bush.

To celebrate, Independence First, a resource organization in Milwaukee, hosted a community arts event at Lake Shore State Park.

Each project was designed so people of all abilities could participate.

"We also brought some assistive technology with us," said Gerald Hay, Program Manager at Independence First, "And it's one of those things that generates a lot of interest because a lot of times people might not know there is an option available, so when they see it, they're like what is that? What can it do? And can I try it?"

If you'd like to test any of the adaptive equipment, Independence First says to give them a call or stop by their Walker's Point location on South 1st Street.
