While federal law prohibits discrimination against people with disabilities, we still face barriers everyday. Check your community -
search, watch, listen - for barriers such as: physical barriers (no ramps, no curb cuts), communication barriers (no Braille signage, no sign language interpreter), and attitudinal barriers (avoiding, not looking in the eyes of, or not talking directly to people with
disabilities, but to their companions). Interview people with disabilities about the improvements made and the barriers that still exist.
The entry deadline is October 31, 2016. Visit www.wvsilc.org for more information.
