Professional headshot of Bonnie Duffy.The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is widely recognized for its positive impact on promoting accessibility and equal opportunities for individuals with disabilities. Compliance is crucial.

My best friend has used a wheelchair most of her life. Our group sometimes faces challenges with going to events, eating out and traveling with her. She feels she is a burden to us but we take her anywhere we go.

Lack of awareness and education between businesses and the ADA requirements is difficult. Addressing these barriers requires a multi-faceted approach that includes outreach, technical assistance, and incentives to support businesses.

Collaboration between stakeholders, including government agencies, advocacy organizations, and business associations, is essential to promoting accessibility and fostering a culture of inclusion in business environments.

We need to all work together to make this possible.
This is my first blog but I am passionate about helping people any way I can!
