Did you know that Sprout CoWorking is fully accessible for wheelchairs? On Tuesday April 19th at 10am, Sprout will be hosting Tina Guenette Pedersen, Ms Southern New England, for a photoshoot. Stop by to meet her and say hi! In July Tina will be traveling to Florida to compete for the 👑 National USA Ambassador & SLICC Ambassador (Success through Leadership, Integrity, Character and Confidence). Tina will be the only person of physical disability to compete at this level, expanding the meaning of Equity, Diversity and Inclusion.
Tina wants to break barriers and stereotypes that people who use wheelchairs are different. She continues to wonder why, 32 years after the ADA was passed, she and others like her don’t have access to so many places.
Tina’s travel expenses are very costly. To help her on her journey to nationals, and to raise awareness that people in wheelchairs can live full and meaningful lives, you can help fund her trip at VENMO: @RAMPTina Or PAYPAL: [email protected] (note: Road to Nationals). Either way, your donation is fully tax deductible.
