People with disabilities, especially physical, are denied the fundamental right to access a space.
In 2018 I attended a Willie Nelson concert where there was no clear accessible seating section. Needless to say I was harassed by people in the crowd because they couldn’t see over my chair and I felt unsafe wedged between chairs and a wall. My friends and I started to exit the venue I was upset and crying. A man who I believe worked for the venue saw me and offered help. I was moved to a space that was more comfortable but still not ADA compliant.
Have you ever been denied access to a space? How was the situation corrected? Can you share any personal stories?
