Sign the Petition to Add Wheelchair Access to Craigslist Housing Posts

People with disabilities understand the difficulty in finding accessible housing. Legislation and changing attitudes have improved the amount of accessible housing options available for people with disabilities. However, many searches for housing are performed on the internet nowadays which often means that people with disabilities do not know of the accessibility of a potential housing option without going to the personally check out the property. A petition on change.org hopes to improve that process by asking Craigslist to add a selection for wheelchair accessibility to its housing posts. This would allow those listing a property to let potential tenants or home buyers know a property is wheelchair accessible. Such a move by Craigslist would greatly streamline the process of finding housing for people with disabilities. To sign the petition, check out the following link:
