Reveca Torres's story helps us understand who to include in "design that's usable by all people."

And not just in Illinois, but anywhere.

I was injured and paralyzed in a car accident at the age of 13 and now use a power wheelchair to navigate my community and move around the world.

I am an artist and also founder and director of a nonprofit called BACKBONES, for people with spinal cord injury. My work requires travel and event planning – so I encounter good design and bad terrible not-accessible design in every aspect of travel, hospitality, event planning…and my own housing experiences.
