The City definitely needs to hear from as many people as possible about the potential problems for people with disabilities of banning plastic straws. Reaching out to our CDPAP consumers could be very worthwhile. Also, other disability agencies, like ARC, may want to weigh in, as quite a few of the people they serve may rely on plastic straws. If we help pass a compromise measure, we will have done better than major cities and companies are doing on this issue, with their blanket bans and vague, lukewarm promises to “consider” the needs of people with disabilities.
