Connecticut is a state rich in history, with some beautiful public buildings other states would love to have a fraction of. These spectacular structures are also old and problematic for many, especially for those with disabilities.
That’s where this guy comes in. Jonathan Slifka is Governor Malloy’s new and first ever disability advocate. Slifka is a trailblazer who has gone where many people with disabilities had never gone before. He was our guest this Sunday on Face the State and at the link below you’ll hear his life story and his goals for making our state a better place to live for people with disabilities in terms of mobility, transportation and jobs.
Bottom line: our state still has a long way to go.
Watch right here and also learn about his own experience when he arrived for the taping: http://www.wfsb.com/clip/12082666/making-the-state-more-handicapped-accessible
