Nov. 2011 Attempt to change SCC event to accessible location

  1. 1. Subject: SCC at Precinct? Call it an "inaccessible social event" then.From: Community Access Project, SomervilleDate: November 3, 2011 2:37:28 PM EDTTo: dleblanc@somervillecdc.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?!
  2. 2. 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
