This landmark legislation was the first time disabled people had some federal protection from discrimination. Federal workplace protections in Sections 501 and 503 went into effect quickly, but it took years of advocacy, protest, and a 29 day sit-in by disability advocates to get the regulations prohibiting discrimination in any federally funded programs in Section 504 signed into law.
