Can I call the ADA?

The ADA is not an agency, organization or a service provider. The ADA is a civil rights law that prohibits discrimination against individuals with disabilities in all areas of public life, including jobs, schools, transportation, and most public and private places that are open to the general public. The purpose of the law is to make sure that people with disabilities have the same rights and opportunities as everyone else. The ADA Centers, collectively known as the ADA National Network, provide information and training about the ADA and can be contacted by calling 800-949-4232. The US Department of Justice also has an ADA information line and can be contacted by calling 800-514-0301.

If you have more questions about this or if you need to know more about something else under the ADA, please contact the Northeast ADA Center at 800-949-4232, by email at, or by submitting a question through our website.
