ADA/VETS realizes that the discrimination and/or the lack of accommodation of disabled individuals still exists. The organization has generated a network from state to state to ultimately guarantee equality where disability is concerned. ADA/VETS will do this by inclusion of other disabled Americans, merchants and partners joining the network and collaboratively working together.
