A New Icon for Disability
The Accessible Icon Project has been promoting an updated version of the international symbol of accessibility seen in handicapped parking spaces and on doors. The new sign shows a person with a disability pushing himself or herself in a wheelchair, making the person look more active. This symbol has made appearances in Orlando and New York, and a bill proposing its implementation is going through Connecticut's House of Representatives.
