Sometimes, we take accessible buildings for granted; but they aren’t always accessible for people living with disabilities and our rights aren’t always granted. 

Every now and then we have to make some noise, show up and be counted, prepare for a smack down…

So it was at the California Building Standards Commission last week.  Couldn’t make it to Sacramento?  Didn’t really understand the issues?  Wondering what happened?

We’ve condensed two days of testimony and cliff hanger votes into 30 jam-packed minutes with 12 of the advocates who made the trip and stood up for your access rights.  They are Ana Acton, Barry Atwood, Vanessa Proe, Nicole Sykes, Connie Arnold, Tim Thimesch, Dawn Anderson, HolLynn D’Lil, Russell Rollings, Kristen Ansel, and Dolores Tejada.
