The Ann Arbor Commission on Disability Issues is looking for new members.This Commission is an advisory board to which members are nominated by the Mayor of Ann Arbor and approved by City Council. We promote equal opportunities and look for ways to create full participation in all aspects of community life for people with disabilities.  We are currently looking for new community members to join our commission.

Commissioner activities include identifying barriers to access in our community and working with the City Administration to make corrective changes, engaging with other community groups to raise the profile of our commission, and advocating in general for an inclusive and accessible Ann Arbor.

In addition to people who have a disability, others who are encouraged to apply include caregivers,  parents, and individuals who live with someone who is disabled. Anyone who wants to advocate for change and fairness is welcome.

I am writing to ask your help by printing the attached flier and hanging it within your business or posting it to your website resource page or within your newsletters.  Also, please feel free to forward both this letter and the flier to others who advocate for people with disabilities.

We appreciate your time to consider these materials. For questions you can call me at 734-996-5569 or e-mail me at
