You can’t have diversity without disability. You can’t have civil rights without disability rights. You can’t have justice without disability justice.

Disabled people don’t want apologies for inaccessibility. Disabled people want access.

change.org/p/department-of-t… 5/16 Transportation Alternative activists engaged in harassing senior residents handing out👇flyers. TA are using illegal vendors that drive to the area to peddle their agenda to shut down a street used, needed, & wanted by the community & local businesses

Illegal vendors selfishly blocking pedestrian passage have declared war on residents & small businesses rooted in the neighborhood for decades. They claim to own the street yet are not stakeholders in the community. They claim to be neighbors but do not live here #stoptheslip

Just another empty 72° day at this @NYC_DOT supported "open street' that traps elderly and disabled residents, and is only packed when politicians like @CMShekarK and @NYCMayor roll through. Thanks to @JimRockaway for the picture! Why does @34_ave hate the disabled so?

If you lived in these neighborhoods you wouldn’t be “lol” … nothing funny about kids not sleeping due to restaurant din, rats chewing their bike tires, fire trucks delayed to emergency situations.

Just a reminder. The @NYCHealthy doesn't inspect these outdoor dining structures. The @NYC_DOT does, and apparently they like feral disease carrying creatures scurrying around the feet of upper class customers.

Here are one of the”partners” tables set up with endorsement of @NYC_DOT @kylegormannyc on #openstreets Berry St 5/4/21 for a “community” design workshop. High pop of Eastern European Homeowners live in this community. @ydanis bullying residents opposing OS is gov by intimidation

#freeberryst These are the tiny notepads used for feedback. The plastic pens & keychains are not environmentally friendly just a waste of taxpayer money. @NYC_DOT is trying hard to repackage & brand “community” “neighbor”The DOT #openstreets is political theater
Please join us TOMORROW 5/14 from 12-4PM on Berry St between North 6th St and North 7th St in #Brooklyn to share your feedback about the Berry Open Streets.

Your designers are unclear how a permanent open street will impact emergency response times for side streets that link to this 15-block stretch. Can @FDNY @NYCMayor provide data for EMS response time pre-open streets for comparison? #safety #access #equity

Why do nondisabled people have such an irresistible urge to tell disabled people that we are not disabled?

If there are any disability access issues (hint) they should be addressed in court. We need an inspection and I or a non profit can sue over this. I would be shocked but I see conditions like this daily and nothing gets done unless one files a lawsuit.

#freeberryst The DOT presented its half-baked plan in Nov 21 to @BrooklynCB1 April 22 they sponsored a Transportation Alternatives Petition calling for redesign of Berry. This is not led by the community living here.
