"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.

It is 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

Step 1

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 needs patrons.

Step 2

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.

Step 3

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 "We The People Power" !
