Federationists, 

In case you ever feel like what you think does not make a difference, that you are just one person and no need to speakup, think again!  

 

Marianne Denning alerted us to this Change.org campaign.  I have participated in other change.org petitions that have succeeded, so quickly got on board with this one.  

 

In a nutshell, the problem was a poster promoting the importance of safety in scientific settings in schools and other places.  

The image was a blind woman with a white cane and a message that basically said she doesn’t need safety glasses any more because it’s too late for her.  

Those are not verbatim words.  The actual quote was even uglier, but the point is, here is a message that the campaign succeeded and the poster has been removed from the product line.  

Thanks, Marianne, for cluing us in.  

And thanks all of you who take the time to sign a petition, contact a member of Congress, attend a town hall meeting, or forward a notice of interest to the rest of us.

 

Our voices count. And we can all help change what it means to be blind.

 

Peace,

Deborah
