GREAT LAKES ADA CENTER AND THE ILLINOIS ADA PROJECT TRANSPORTATION ACCESS AND EXPERIENCES SURVEY
The Great Lakes ADA Center and the Illinois ADA Project would like to invite you to participate in a national survey titled, Transportation Access and Experiences, which is designed to improve understanding of accessibility of public transportation for people with disabilities. This survey is being conducted by the ADA Participation Action Research Consortium (ADA-PARC), a collaborative research project of seven ADA Regional Centers. This project focuses on community living, community participation & work/economic participation disparities of people with disabilities (For more information, visit the website: www.adaparc.org). We would like to improve our understanding on transportation access of people with disabilities and use this information to make improvements at regional and national levels.
We are very interested in receiving as many responses as possible from people with disabilities based on their personal experiences with public transportation. Please feel free to share the survey with potentially interested entities. The results will serve as crucial evidence to support improvements to accessible transportation.
Please use this link to access and complete the survey.

HIGHLAND PARK AND HIGHWOOD ARE READY TO TACKLE FOOD INSECURITY
An inspired crowd of 150 residents packed the Highland Park Country Club on Tuesday, April 21st to learn about food insecurity in Highland Park and Highwood and become part of the solution in ensuring no one goes hungry in their communities. Presentations were made by members of the community and keynote speaker Christopher G. Kennedy, founder of Top Box Foods Express and former chairman of the Greater Chicago Food Depository, who shared his vision and unique strategy to address hunger and nutrition
Noted Dr. Tom Koulentes, Principal of Highland Park High School, "Food insecurity touches all of the age and cultural demographics of our students and our community; no group is immune." With one out of every four elementary students in Highland Park and Highwood qualifying for the federal free/reduced lunch program at their school, along with the increased use of the Moraine Township Food Pantry, food insecurity is an unfortunate reality.
