"They looked at me like I was from another planet" - Les's Story

"They looked at me like I was from another planet".

This is Les's story about the prejudice, lack of understanding, and lack of training that he encounters every day in people working across public and private services. Les thinks an accessibility law could make training compulsory for those who work with the public to help remove accessibility barriers. 

This is my access story, it is one of many. I'm sharing it because I want a law that puts accessibility at the heart of an inclusive Aotearoa New Zealand.
