Join BCID and other disability groups as we call on the MTA to make a binding legal agreement to make New York City’s subway system fully accessible at a rally outside of New York State Supreme Court, 60 Centre Street, Manhattan, on Tuesday, October 30 at 9 a.m. 

Afterwards, we’ll head into the court house, where Judge Schlomo Hagler is holding a settlement conference at 10 a.m. (Part 17, Room 335) in our lawsuit against the MTA, charging that it violates New York City Human Rights law by denying access to the subways for people with disabilities and others who need elevators to travel freely throughout the city. (July 2017 photo shows New York City firefighters with Valerie Joseph, a BCID employee, at the base of stairs in the Jay Street-Metrotech station. The elevator was out of order and the firefighters carried Valerie and, separately, her chair out of the station.)
