106 STAT. 5394 PROCLAMATION 6467—SEPT. 1, 1992 Because Project D.A.R.E. brings drug abuse prevention to the classroom, it not only meets a key objective of our National Drug Control Strategy but also complements America 2000, our national strategy to achieve excellence in our schools. One of the six National Education Goals that form the basis of America 2000 calls for every school in the United States to be free of drugs and violence. If we are to achieve that goal, all Americans must work together to create safe, drug-&ee communities where learning can happen. Reaching an estimated 25 million young Americans every year, Project D.A.R.E. provides an outstanding example of cooperation among parents, educators, law enforcement personnel, business owners, and civic and religious leaders. On this occasion, we celebrate their efforts and congratulate each of the young Americans who have chosen to say "No!" to drugs and "Yes!" to opportunity through education. The Congress, by Senate Joint Resolution 295, has designated September 10, 1992, as "National D.A.R.E. Day" and has requested the President to issue a proclamation in observance of this day. NOW, THEREFORE, I, GEORGE BUSH. President of the United States of America, do hereby proclaim September 10, 1992, as National D.A.R.E. Day. I encourage all Americans to observe this day with appropriate programs and activities in celebration of Drug Abuse Resistance Education and in honor of the many dedicated professionals and volunteers who have made it possible. I also invite Americans to observe this occasion by joining in community-based partnerships in support of America 2000 and our National Drug Control Strategy. IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this twenty- sixth day of August, in the year of our Lord nineteen hundred and ninety-two, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and seventeenth. GEORGE BUSH Proclamation 6467 of September 1, 1992 National Rehabilitation Week, 1992 By the President of the United States of America A Proclamation With the adoption of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA), the United States emphatically reaffirmed its commitment to equal opportunity for every citizen. By eliminating barriers to employ- ment, public accommodations, and government services, this historic legislation will enable millions of persons with disabilities to participate more fully in our Nation's social and economic mainstream. The ADA not only provides a model for the world but also portends a bright future for the United States as we look forward to the increasing contributions of talented, hardworking men and women who happen to have a disability. Today millions of Americans with disabilities are already making outstanding contributions to our communities and country. For some, these achievements would not have been possible without rehabilitation. The field of rehabilitation includes a wide range of professionals
