Tell us how you want to Be Social Change.

Confronting the difficulties and expense of getting around the city in a wheelchair has enhanced my dedication to disability rights and accessibility. Since graduation I have been involved with the need for accessible taxis. I have worked with the TLC on several occasions, most recently as a tester for the Handicapped Accessible Dispatch Program. This program as well as other attempts to have the TLC intercede in a meaningful way to improve taxi transportation for the disabled has failed. I have since focused my attention on developing a viable, not for profit entity which would be economically self sustaining and provide affordable and accessible black car service for those with disabilities who live in and travel to NYC.

What is your email address? We'd love to send you the latest on events, classes, and impact oppportunities.

Introduction

I'm a 29 year old NYU graduate living in the East Village. I have Cerebral Palsy and as a result I use a wheelchair fulltime. I have a fondness for history, love living in NYC and have a weakness for football.
