Hurricane sandy is heading for the tri-state area are you prepared? Have you checked on your disabled neighbors and family?

Last year, during hurricane irenes attack on NYC 1 in 5 shelters provided by the city were either not wheelchair accessible or the volunteers refused to lift or assist the disabled into the shelters.

I just had a conversation with the staff of Christine Quinn speaker of the house for the Newyork city council, her assistant Michaela Miller assures me that the moment the centers adresses are declared she will email me the list for you to access.

If this storm does hit in the force they expect and you encounter any trouble, please email me at disabledaccessdenied@gmail.com  with your location and details and what kind of device (walker wheelchair mobility scooter) and we will get help to you.

Stay tuned to my Blog for hour to hour updates and we will get through this together, regards Mia g Vayner

I am a disabled woman who through no fault of my own has wheels under my ass. I rely on the decency and common sense of local, state and federal goverments, as well as the retail community to abide by the disabled access laws and provide adequate ramps, disabled toilets, and not use them as store rooms or broom closets. This blog exists to find the offenders and out them, inform them, and report them if necessary and shame them into doing the right thing when all else fails.
