Making Waves in Lansing


We were out talking to our legislators in Lansing yesterday! We were out as part of a state-wide day organized by CILs to bring disability issues to the attention of our legislators. Among issues we are advocating for? The new Go! logo! We strongly believe it’s important that all accessibility signs portray people with disabilities as the active and independent members of our community that we are.
