Happy 30th anniversary to the Americans with Disabilities Act! Since its passage in 1990, this landmark legislation has helped increase access and opportunity for people with disabilities in our nation’s workplaces and communities. Architect Todd Hanson, founder of Access Navigators, never expected to play a leading role in building accessibility awareness and providing reliable accessibility information. We applaud his vision to create an organization that continues to have a positive impact on people and communities everywhere. Happy 30th ADA!
For those of you thinking of venturing out, Access Navigators is taking a look at outdoor dining accessibility in Portsmouth NH. Check back regularly, restaurants are added every week. For those of you “dining out” at home, there are great take-out options all over town offering curbside pick-up and delivery. Whatever you choose, bon appetit!
Access Navigators has become a leader in advocacy for people impacted by disabilities by speaking all over the world about the impact of accessibility on people and the economy; mentoring students and volunteers as advocates and data collectors; and continuing to look for new ways to keep people impacted by disabilities connected to their communities. Today, in the midst of a global pandemic, we’re pausing and pondering new ways that our knowledge and reach can bring a positive influence to the re-shaping of our communities. We’ll keep you posted as we develop strategies for growth.
Todd Hanson and Anne Weidman of Access Navigators honored with the 2019 Governor’s Accessibility Award! Presented by the New Hampshire Governor’s Commission on Disability, the award is given to individuals who have distinguished themselves through initiatives that embody the mission of the Americans with Disabilities Act.
