Wheelchair user Jackie Jackson: 'Roll with me'


This is an interesting exercise:

Jackie Jackson, a New Jersey social worker with multiple sclerosis, has launched a statewide initiative to educate municipal officials about making facilities more friendly to people with disabilities, according to a Dec. 8 article in mycentraljersey.com. As part of her "accessibility tour," Jackson encourages officials to "roll with me" through various facilities, including city halls and libraries.

After taking the tour recently, Plainfield Mayor Sharon Robinson-Briggs told a reporter for mycentraljersey.com:

"I do see some areas that we need to improve. I saw a lot of obstacles today I didn't see before."

Keep up the good work, Jackie!
