Progress Since Service Dog Denied

Today has made leaps forward in progress. Essential first step was understanding ADA violations and it's boundaries vs the ordinance of the ACA (Air Carriers Access)Where this falls in regard to Civil Rights violations, etc. Am speaking with various entities actively submitting legislation in support of access in the airline industry. Assessed where my incident falls in regard to airline violations as well as state vs federal. Discovering where to concentrate so the greatest impact can occur without spinning wheels (so to speak). Got in contact with several disability rights organizations including PVA (Paralyzed Veterans of America) and am hoping my story (although I know there are a million others) might be of assistance in any of their pending legislation as well as fostering of new regulations. Screaming from the mountain top, even if my wheels are getting caught up in the crags here and there. Each step forward is because of the invaluable information so many of you have sent me. Thank you for uniting together in the creation of this battle plan for disability rights. Marching on!
