MK Matalon: Accessibility is the Key to Social Justice and Equal Rights
MK Moshe Matalon spoke at a conference at the Open University today on rights of the disabled.
“Accessibility is not only a physical issue – checking where there is and isn’t a ramp or an elevator – accessibility is about changing one’s perspective. Accessibility is the key to social justice and equal rights,” said MK Matalon.
MK Matalon described how on his recent trip to Berlin, he was able to travel about the city and use public transportation without any assistance or pre-planning. “That should be the standard in Israel too,” said the MK.
