Default Your nominations wanted for ADA 'Eagle" and 'Turkey" Awards

Disability Rights Advocates is planning an ADA Eagles and Turkeys Awards event. I hope you might be able to assist us in identifying candidates for these awards. The Eagle awards will acknowledge businesses, organizations and persons who have advanced the rights and opportunities for people with disabilities. The Turkey awards will call out those who have resisted such progress for people with disabilities.

Please feel free to send such suggestions to me at lparadis@dralegal.org.

We are hoping to receive all nominations by October 15.

If you don't know, DRA has taken on a number of cases in the short time since they opened their NYC office. as they focus on class action and impact litigation concerning all types of access barriers faced by New Yorkers with disabilities. Cases have included taxi and subway accessibility, accessibility of polling places, and emergency preparedness for persons with disabilities.
Thanks for your time and attention to this matter

Sincerely Larry Paradis, Executive Director, Disability Rights Advocates
