nationwide movement calling for congress to amend the Americans

Accommodations section. This part states places of accommodations

pharmacies, retail stores, libraries, parks, driver schools and
What we are calling for is to add
rooms and waiting rooms to this list.
Our group has one simple goal . . to help
senior citizens, handicapped individuals & disabled veterans to enjoy the same
quality of service, access & dignity as non seniors &
handicapped individuals & disabled veterans.
Currently, the Americans with Disabilities
Act, (AWDA), does not provide adequate seating for some people.
Some seniors, handicapped & disabled people are unable to stand up from
an armless chair & require physical hands on assistance from
strangers, thereby removing this persons independence &

The Department of Justice (DOJ), the
agency responsible for enforcing the AWDA, will not meet to accept
comments or suggestions for amendments until July of 2015.
However, we have a state senator & representative working on a
bill that will help us meet our goal of providing armed chairs to
entities in Louisiana until the DOJ meets again in 2015.
We are therefore asking concerned
supporters, friends & family members of seniors, handicapped
& disabled veterans to call, write or email our Louisiana
members of the house & senate & tell them you support
Project Armchair ! By doing this, you're telling them that you
support a bill to add an amendment to the AWDA & to Louisiana
Again, all you need do is contact them and
say "I support Project ArmChair !"
