The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) provides civil rights protections to individuals with disabilities like those provided to individuals on the basis of race, color, sex, national origin, age, and religion. The ADA guarantees equal opportunity for individuals with disabilities in public accommodations, employment, transportation, State and local government services, and telecommunications.

Title II ADA Non-Discrimination Statement 

Sarasota County prohibits discrimination in all services, programs or activities on the basis of race, color, national origin, age, disability, sex, marital status, familial status, religion, or genetic information.

Title VI Non-Discrimination Statement

Sarasota County values diversity and welcomes input from all interested parties, regardless of cultural identity, background or income level. Moreover, the county believes that the best programs and services result from careful consideration of the needs of all of its communities and from when those communities are involved in the transportation decision-making process. Thus, the county does not tolerate discrimination in any of its programs, services or activities.

Pursuant to Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and other federal and state authorities, Sarasota County will not exclude from participation in, deny the benefits of, or subject to discrimination anyone on the grounds of race, color, national origin, sex, age, disability, religion, income or family status.
