My name is Kennen Dorgan. My dream is to fly to Alaska to visit my sister. I have a complex physical disAbility and I use a wheelchair for mobility. I cannot sit independently from my wheelchair and airplanes do not have designated wheelchair spots. Every summer I spend at least 108 hours of challenging and exhausting driving time to visit with my sister in Alaska. A flight would take 15 to 20 hours.
I am one of thousands of people who require a designated wheelchair spot in order to travel on an airplane. All Wheels Up is a United States of America (USA) based organization that is testing the safety of wheelchairs in airplanes and petitioning the USA government (and now the Canadian government) for the creation of wheelchair accessible spaces on planes. I invite you to join me in my letter writing campaign to help make this accessible plane travel a reality.
Please read my letter (below). Then download the print and mail letter, add your personal comments, and mail (no stamps required to House of Commons)
OR e-mail your personalized letter (or the general letter).
Thank you so much for your part in making this accessible change a reality.
