This summer, an ad campaign from Google and 72andSunny marks the 25th anniversary of the landmark legislation, “Capitol Crawl,” by featuring painted portraits of key figures in the disability rights movement on the steps of major cultural buildings in Washington, D.C.

Posted from July 24-27, the billboards featured a range of notable activists—like Claudia Gordon, the first deaf female African-American attorney in U.S. history, and Ed Roberts, a leader in the drive for the ADA as well as the movement more broadly—at buildings like Gallaudet University and the National Portrait Gallery, respectively. They also celebrated legislators like former U.S. Sen. Tom Harkin of Iowa and U.S. Rep. Patrick Kennedy of Rhode Island.

Check out all of the stunning portraits and their locations, along with more information on the story of the Americans with Disabilities Act here.
