People with disabilities face challenges of accessibility and transportation that many other individuals simply don't encounter. Whether it's crossing a busy street, getting to a job or a cultural or athletic event, or moving from class to class in school, quality of life issues depend on how easy these everyday acts are to accomplish.
At this panel discussion, moderated by Carolyn Grawi, the Director of Advocacy and Education at the Ann Arbor Center for Independent Living, four people with disabilities will discuss how they fare navigating around Ann Arbor. The panelists are James (Jim) Briggs, Terrie Maxwell, Pam McGuinty, and Pam Watson. CART Service for people who are deaf will be provided at this event. This event is cosponsored by the Ann Arbor Center for Independent Living.
