Living in an Australian society that understands and accepts all forms of disability is no longer a pipedream for New South Wales woman Marni Walkerden.
Ms Walkerden is the brains behind the Think Outside the Chair campaign, which is launching in the NSW central coast region this morning.
The online initiative is encouraging the public to download, print and display a new symbol that encompasses all forms of disabilities — both visible and not.
Ms Walkerden said that the proposed new icon and accompanying hashtag #ThinkOutsideTheChair will be displayed alongside the universal symbol for disability at public spaces.
