Hello,
I can truly say that my first picketing was against NAC in 1973. I have been involved in protest since that time. In fact I was involved in two rallys in Toledo this year. I accopplished this by sitting in my wheelchair. I think it is good for all of us to remember that we have to fight for injustice wherever it rears xs' ugly head.
I will definitely participate in any future picketing.
For something like this you don't need great numbers.

> Hello Everyone,

> The Cleveland and Cuyahoga County Chapters had a combined Goodwill Informational Protest at our local East side store.  Although we were small in number, we carried signs and gave out fliers.  We alerted people to the injustice of paying workers with disabilities subminimum wages, and those with whom we spoke did not venture into the store. 
> 
> We all did good work, and congratulations to Robert Kihm, a relatively new member of the  Cuyahoga Chapter, whose fervor and excitement was exemplified by the highest number of fliers distributed to the general public.
> 
> It is due to events such as these that we can enlighten public perception on the plight faced by workers with disabilities, and I and others, no doubt, will be there to rally in support of eliminating injustices such as these.
