New Look, New Meaning- Have You Seen the New Disability Icon?

ShoutOut! James Madison University

Recently, I was walking from Market One toward the Quad and decided to cut through the breezeway when I saw it. I had never really noticed the handicap accessible sign before, but this one caught my eye. The sign behind Wilson featured a person leaning forward in their wheelchair, showing movement, which contrasted the old, passive wheelchair and person in the old symbol. When I investigated further, I found out that the symbol was actually part of a larger project called The Accessible Icon Project with the aims to change how we talk sand view the disability community.

The old vs. new wheelchair accessibility icon. The old vs. new wheelchair accessibility icon.
