This Week in DE&I  

There are many cultural and religious holidays celebrated and recognized throughout our community this month. Learn about some of the significant dates being observed in Irvine below and on our DE&I calendar.


National Disability Independence Day & Disability Pride Month

During its meeting July 25, the Irvine City Council proclaimed July 26 as Americans with Disabilities Act Awareness Day. On July 26, 1990, President George H.W. Bush signed into law the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) to ensure the civil rights of people with disabilities. This legislation established a clear and comprehensive national mandate for the elimination of discrimination against individuals with disabilities.


The City of Irvine affirms the principles of equality and inclusion for those with disabilities as set forth by the State of California and ordinances of the City of Irvine. Numerous organizations in the City of Irvine work with constituents and communities to bring forth the promise of hope and freedom that is envisioned by the passage of the ADA. 


The City of Irvine is an Equal Opportunity Employer and provides reasonable accommodations to qualified individuals with disabilities.
