Part of our mission at DSLC is to advocate for equality for people with disabilities in all aspects of living in our community. This advocacy takes many forms in response to a variety of needs. We’re all in this together, so make a contribution to change in your community!
At this time we are focusing on improving access to our many pedestrian and bicycle pathways by bringing attention to obstacles and barriers found along them. This page encourages you to submit photos and information about any such obstacles you may encounter in the community so they may be addressed. Sidewalks, roadways, curbs – they’re all fair game.
We can resize your photo to fit our format. Please tell us where and when the photo was taken. If you want your name mentioned as the advocate who spotted the problem, let us know! Pedestrian safety affects everyone, and is a key to the inclusion of people with disabilities in all areas of life. It supports the deinstitutionalization of people with disabilities.
Our advocacy plan is a multi-pronged effort to increase safety and maximize the usefulness of our system of roadways (streets, sidewalks and parking) for people with disabilities.
Our intention is to involve volunteers and community members to come together the help create safer, more attractive and accessible pedestrian pathways throughout the communities we serve. We will begin with the most populous city in our service area, Santa Rosa, and then develop similar plans in Napa and Ukiah.
