Let’s Open Doors Campaign

“Welcome”

 

A greeting we all like to hear or feel when we enter a doctor’s office, a restaurant, a bank, or any place of business…

 

so, WELCOME! to

 Let's Open Doors

 

It is the civil right of disabled persons to have equal access to premises and has been since 1973 and was restated in the American Disabilities Act of 1990. Yet, entry doors of existing buildings are outdated and heavy for patrons with disabilities and/or age related problems. It is the goal of LETS OPEN DOORS  to advocate equal access by:

  • appealing to the good will of our society: individual, commercial and civic
  • emphasizing awareness of rights of disabled persons through advertisements
  • training employees to assist patrons with disabilities by opening the door
  • installing a doorbell if necessary to alert the staff
  • changing the door pressure by an assisted pressure mechanism
  • adding an electronic push plate or an automatic door
  • citing the federal/state “disability access tax credit” to business and mall owners
  • establishing grants for small businesses to retrofit doors
