The portable ramp to get around the construction doesn't work if there's not another one on the other side of the street, @SLU_Official.
Aaand after already adding 6 extra blocks to my route because of SLU construction, now I have to add another 2 blocks to get across the street to the other @STLMetro Grand elevator.
The shortest distance between two points is never ♿ accessible.
& nearly 2hrs after starting my journey from N Grand & adding yet another unnecessary half mile b/c @googlemaps kept trying to send me down unpacked gravel trails in Forest Park, the curb "ramps" to @stlzoo are actually steps & one is also blocked w/ little potholes.
I give up.

Hi friends!

Today, as we mark the 28th anniversary of the signing of the Americans with Disabilities Act (#ADA28), let’s do one better.

Let’s stop relegating people with disabilities to a single day in the calendar.

1. One in five Americans are people with disabilities. NEWSFLASH: This makes pretty much every issue a disability issue—from health care to the economy to the environment, to criminal justice, and more.
2. But for too long the notion of “disability policy” has lived in a silo—artificially & counterproductively separate from the fight to end poverty & tackle inequality, to curb climate change, to achieve criminal justice reform, and even the fight for universal health care.
