Project Easy Access Lexington Favorite 



Nov 1 2010


Lexington, KY

Spearheaded by Latitude Artist Community, Project Easy Access Lexington (PEAL) organized team 'Bricksquad' to help make the sidewalks and streets of downtown Lexington, KY more wheelchair accessible. Armed with only a canvas bag of few bricks, sand, and some tools the teams would make their way through the sidewalks restoring bricks as needed. The damage to the sidewalks was such that the gesture was symbolic more than effectual initially. In the span of a few years, the PEAL was able to hold rallies, and were successful in their advocation for creating a Mayor's Commission for Citizens with Disabilities, a successful office helping to serve disability advocates and organizations.
