"I SUPPORT PROJECT ARMCHAIR!"
this means is you support a state and national movement calling
for congress to amend the Americans with Disabilities Act, (AWDA)
Title III, Subpart D, Public Accommodations section. This part
states places of accommodations include restaurants, hotels,
theaters, doctors offices, pharmacies, retail stores, libraries,
parks, driver schools and museums.
group has one simple goal .. to help senior citizens, handicapped
people and disabled veterans to enjoy the same quality
of service, access and dignity as non seniors, non handicapped or
What we are
calling for is to add restaurants, meeting rooms and waiting rooms
to this list.
Currently, the AWDA does
not provide adequate seating for some people.
Some seniors, handicapped and disabled people/veterans are
unable to stand up from an armless chair and require physical
hands on assistance from strangers and/or passer-byers, thereby
removing this person’s independence and dignity.
We have made this as
simple and easy as we can. No meetings, no fees, no dues, no
complications. All we are asking is for you, your family members,
friends, senior and handicapped people/veterans to make phone
calls, write letters and emails to US Congressmen. These
congressmen speak for the entire nation in getting this amendment
to AWDA asking for chairs with arms.
We have already paved
the way with information to congressmen. Their offices know what
you are asking for when you contact them saying you support
project armchair. This is all you have to do ! You may or may not
choose to add a comment to your individual request. This would
affect at least 80 million seniors and
handicapped &/or disabled people & veterans nationwide
& over 1 million in Louisiana alone !
Call, write, email your
state Representative and US Congressmen and ask them to aid us in
amending the AWDA by adding under public accommodations section,
5% of seating capacity with armed chairs.
Again, all you need to
do it contact them and say “I support Project Armchair !”
