Nov. 2011 Attempt to change SCC event to accessible location
Subject: SCC at Precinct? Call it an "inaccessible social event" then.From: Community Access Project, SomervilleDate: November 3, 2011 2:37:28 PM EDTTo: firstname.lastname@example.orgHi Danny,CAPS has been forwarded SCCs announcement aboutthe social get-together at the Precinct on Nov. 17 from5-8, to publicly launch "interactive somerville.com"But Danny: The Precinct is not accessible for non-stairusers by any standards (even if the elevator is madeavailable to Precinct patrons after 5 pm.)Would you consider borrowing one of thosewheelchairs outside the Family Health Center on thefirst floor of SCCs building-- to try it out foryourself?!
As you roll from the Subway shoppe to that backentrance, youll begin to experience the negative socialand health impact of details that are describedtechnically like this: "the entrance has a threshold thatis over 1.5 inches at the door. The ground surface ispitted or hilly and the cross-slopes along that routerange from 3.4% to 6.7%."Please choose another location- one that offersintegration right at the door.That "interactive somerville " project looks likesomething everyone can enjoy.Please respond directly- dont send me around theblock again. Youre the guy in charge.Thank you.<eila>Community Access Project, SomervilleQuality isnt possible without Equality
