UTICA, N.Y.- The Resource Center for Independent Living (RCIL), recognizes the progress and shortfalls of the law every year.
Many of the people who attended the event Friday at Hanna Park outside Utica City Hall discussed new ways to improve accessibility for those with disabilities.
According to RCIL, People with disabilities are the largest minority.
One person who attended the event Patrick Carmen told NewsChannel 2: “There is still a lot of progress that has to be made. It is being made but in small steps and that's all we ask for. Each step of the way we are getting closer and closer to more accessibility and more access to things.”.
Carmen says that speaking up is the only way change will happen for the next person who comes along.
Inside Utica City Hall, the Oneida County Board of Elections set up a sample voting booth.
The purpose was to show those who attended Friday’s event how to vote.
