Getting around Paris can be tiring for anyone, but for those with mobility issues it can be a real chore. I know -- because I remember how difficult it was for my father, who was partially disabled after a stroke, to navigate the city during his only trip to Paris.
In an effort to make Paris accessible for everyone, Jaccede and the City of Paris, in partnership with the RATP, is hosting the first Night of Accessibility on May 26, 2011. Designed to be a festive event, volunteers will learn about what makes a place accessible for mobility challenged people and will form teams to search for accessible locations. The evening will end with a free concert and wine at La Bellevilloise.
For more information, please click here to visit Jaccede.com.
Volunteers should meet at 7:00 p.m. at La Bellevilloise at 19-21 rue Boyer, 75020 Paris. Hope to see you there! If you can't make it, please help to spread the word about this worthwhile endeavor.
Many thanks to Adam at Paris Weekends for writing a post about Accessibility Night!
