| 0 TrackBacks

Good news from a community that takes accessibility seriously!

The Barrier Busters Committee in Anacortes, Washington is finally getting the publicity it deserves with this article in the Anachortes American.

One theme of their message is the economic value of people with disabilities:

"There's opportunity for the business community to benefit from lowering barriers," agreed co-chair Kirk Kennedy.

Magno said that the loss of one disabled customer has unseen repercussions for a business.

"These numbers are synergetic. You have husbands, wives, family members, caregivers - you have a whole household that's not going to do business there," he said.
