"I SUPPORT PROJECT ARMCHAIR!"
Our group's major goal is to
help senior citizens, handicapped citizens, disabled veterans,
expectant mothers, people with injuries or anyone else in need, to
enjoy the same quality of service, access & dignity of non
seniors, non handicapped, non disabled, non pregnant or non
injured people by simply providing chairs with arms in public
places to enable these special needs people to arise from a seated
position under their own power, without the assistance of
strangers or by-standers.
our intention to eventually ammend the American with
Disabilities Act (ADA) to include arm chairs as a mandantory
requirement just like wheel chair ramps & handicapped parking.
THREE STEPS TO
REACH OUR GOAL
Encourage local government to pass an ordinance
for all public venues including restaurants, librairies, meeting
places, waiting rooms & anywhere public seating is provided, to
include 5% of the availabe seating with arm chairs for special
Encourage our state senators & representatives to pass a bill
mandating basically the same for all Louisiana entities under the
public accomodations section of the ADA.
Encourage our Louisiana U.S. Senators & Representatives to
introduce & pass the same bill for all the states in the nation.
This will call for adding an amendment to the American's with
Disabilities Act, Title III,
28 CFR par 36 subpart D, simply to add an amendment for 5% of
seating capacity to be chairs with arms.
These actions will not cost our city, state or nation any
additional government funding. They will help some 1.5 million
citizens in Louisiana alone, & approx 100 million nationwaide !
But we get there one step at time.
First things first ... The strongest tie to any community starts
locally. Therefore, we are asking concerned supporters , friends &
family members of seniors, handicapped & disabled people/veterans &
expectant mothers to call, write or email our local council & tell
them you support Project Armchar ! It won't get done without
