Senate Bill 1198 is scheduled to be heard on Wednesday, March 22 @ 2pm in the House Judiciary Committee. Contact members of the Committee today and let them know that civil rights for people with disabilities are important to you and ask them to oppose SB1198.
Senate Bill 1198 was recently approved by the full Senate and has moved to the Arizona House Judiciary Committee. Senate Bill 1198 treats people with disabilities like second-class citizens, takes away our rights, and delays access!

Members of the Arizona Legislature will introduce a bill in the 2017 session that will limit the rights of people who have disabilities to act if they encounter barriers or discrimination when trying to access places of public accommodation such as businesses and organizations. Similar legislation has already been introduced in Congress. However, we know that accessibility is still a problem over 26 years after the Americans with Disabilities Act became law.The ADC is launching the #NOAccessAZ campaign to show that our independence and freedom to participate in the community is still limited. The ADC invites you to share stories and pictures that highlight barriers to access that you encounter. Is there a business that you cannot access because they do not have a wheelchair ramp? Have you requested an ASL interpreter from your doctor only to be denied this accommodation? Has a business turned you away because you use a guide or service dog? Share your story and include a picture showing the barrier if it is appropriate. You can also choose to record a video. Just be sure to use the #NOAccessAZ tag so we can find your story on social media.Interested in Learning More About this Campaign? Go to the #NoAccessAZ page and view the #NoAccessAZ videos.
