In the News: Oregon Officials are "Disabled for a Day"

This KTVZ-TV News 21 video reports that seven perfectly able people were put to the test. "They are city officials, they work with police departments, they design neighborhoods, and they engineer structures." On this day, they navigated the streets in a wheelchair.

The group that organized this disability awareness event included several individuals who live iwth multiple sclerosis. Carol Fulkerson, vice chair of the Oregon Chapter government relations committee, was a primary organizer. See Carol interviewed in this story. View it here.
