On the left you see Toni, a quintuple amputee, sitting in her manual chair modeling her purple 3elove zipper hoodie and orange shorts. She is wearing 7 buttons with different disability rights statements.
On the right you see a close up of Toni's MTA Mobility (paratransit) ID. You have to have a photo ID to get into the building of course. Sorry there's glare. The shirt she's wearing in her ID photo (thanks Texas) says "DON'T CUT MY SERVICES"
While you wait to see our news coverage, here are some other Medicaid budget cuts news headlines from around the country sent out by NationalADAPT through Twitter last night.
