Getting around safely is more important now than ever, with the pandemic, winter, and political situation escalating. Black, Trans, and Disabled community member AR needs a wheelchair accessible van. Lets get it!
Hello community near and far!
Come together with us this fall and winter to get a wheelchair accessible van in our community. Getting around this godforsaken society is difficult for many, and for wheelchair users there are so many additional barriers. AR, and zir friend Lauren-Louise have navigated this over the years, which can mean spending hours to get to an event, appointment, or getting groceries. Ride-shares and public transportation have also been a part of getting these needs met, but they already pose accessibility barriers (no one in Olympia that we know has a wheelchair accessible van, for example) and challenges, and the pandemic adds additional risks and dangers to these already difficult solutions. Our town has failed to be able to provide accessible transportation even when it is most needed, and that needs to change.
And it will!! As soon as we can raise this money, a van will be delivered to AR and Lauren-Louise's house! The van will be able to ease so many stressors and barriers! We'll be able to party and celebrate everyone coming together to smash one piece of this ableist system!
This is obviously a huge sum of money! We need all the help we can get. If you know of wealthy people or organizations who might be able to match donations to support or send in some big chunks to get this process rolling *bu-dum-chh*, please reach out!! Let's get fundraising for this Black, Trans, Disabled babe!!!!!
