Waukesha teens work to change the image of the disabled

WAUKESHA -- Two Waukesha teens are hoping to change the image of disabled people, one parking space at a time.


Kaitlin Somppi and Camryn Ribar wanted to change the handicap parking sign painted on the ground. The logo they decided to use is one where a disabled person is leaning forward, engaged, and in motion.


It started as a Girl Scout project after the girls started talking with a friend in a wheelchair about how the image makes them feel. They then created a stencil, and asked private companies to spray it on their lot.


Some were so touched by it, they plan to bring it to lawmakers to get the image changed statewide.
