Wheel Me On

Thank you to Wheel Me On for 17 years of Disability Advocacy! This organization worked to encourage people with disabilities to participate in society and travel! President Julia Hollenbeck's efforts improved accessibility in Clarksville and across Tennessee and a case for cruise line accessibility brought by five members was decided by the Supreme Court in 1995. Thank you for your dedication, though you have closed your doors, your impact will live on in our community.

Thank you to our members of the Tennessee General Assembly, to our partner organizations and especially to all of the community members who traveled to the Capitol in Nashville for Disability Day on the Hill 2015! We shared issues that are the most important to us: providing services for people with developmental and intellectual disabilities, preserving the Family Support Program, and ensuring that everyone has access to quality, affordable health care.
