January 2020: #AmtrakAccessNow
When I read National Public Radio’s Amtrak Asks 2 People Who Use Wheelchairs To Pay $25,000 For A Ride, I was livid. And one thing you should never do is piss off a social media manager. So I started #AmtrakAccessNow, which ultimately contributed testimony for The Department of Justice case for Amtrak’s violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act—resulting in Amtrak paying over $2 million to more than 1,500 individuals who experienced disability discrimination and a commitment by Amtrak to expand accessibility infrastructure in the next 10 years.
In the next nine years, Amtrak is required to complete designs to make at least 135 of its existing stations accessible, complete construction at 90 of those stations, and begin construction at 45 more.via Department of Justice January 12, 2022 Press Release
