Questions and answers with the artist, Karen Perry

How has the ADA positively impacted your life? 

I have to feel safe In Portland, Maine as a disabled woman therefore the ADA protects me.  It makes changes that every disabled person needs like safe sidewalks or walkways, easy access to public places, entrance & all doors, & bathroom availability.

What do you think the next 30 years will look like for individuals with disabilities?

Improvements in all areas as all people including the disabled work together to foster input in ADA’s mission.
