Winter 2007 Disability Rights Advocates Newsletter

This issue of the DRA newsletter addresses, in part, sidewalk accessibility, a topic I've posted about on here a number of times. Their website reads:

" Lack of sidewalk access is a major cause of isolation and exclusion from the basic opportunities to participate in economic and social life. Despite decades of state and federal civil rights laws, many cities and public entities have ignored these essential access requirements and continue to build and maintain sidewalks without the basic features needed to create accessibility for people with disabilities."

Disability Rights Advocates (DRA) works to improve access for people with disabilities through high-impact litigation, research and public education. A list of cases they've done is at the site above (just click). This organization also has contact information if anyone is dealing with this issue.
