“A Day in a Wheelchair” is an event in which 25 members of the Trinity community can experience what it is like to have a mobility impairment. Participants, including Dean of Students Frederick Alford, have been selected to represent a broad spectrum of groups on campus. The idea originated with Kristin Duquette ’13, a human rights major. According to Duquette and Sean Snyder ’13, who is also a human rights major and an organizer of the event, “A Day in a Wheelchair” is designed to be an empowering and positive experience while shattering the stereotype of what it’s like to be wheelchair-bound.
The goal is for members of the campus community to become aware of the accessible routes on campus and realize that having a disability doesn’t impair one’s contributions. Participants will be interviewed and filmed afterward, and asked to reflect on their experiences.
