Concerned about people with disabilities

COURTESY TO THE BELLINGHAM HERALDJuly 31, 2013 

Twenty-three years ago Congress did something smart. They signed and put into effect the Americans with Disabilities Act. After all these years there are still issues concerning this very act.

As a concerned citizen and developmentally disabled individual I have seen and heard firsthand of the problems people with disabilities still face. I believe there is an abundance of violations here in Bellingham and something has to be done for the betterment of the lives for people with disabilities.
