Accessibility awards ceremony scheduled for Saturday in Arroyo Grande

An event on April 30 at the Clark Center in Arroyo Grande will honor an individual, a business and a community organization for their efforts to make San Luis Obispo County more accessible for all residents.

Access for All’s Paul Wolff Accessibility Advocacy Awards Ceremony, now in its 10th year, will feature International Barrier Breakers, a performing group with various abilities, according to the San Luis Obispo County Community Foundation.

The ceremony is free to the public and starts at 2 p.m.; doors open at 1 p.m. The Clark Center is located at 487 Fair Oaks Ave.

Last year’s honorees included Jill Heuer for her dedication to NPR’s StoryCorps Project in the county; Trader Joe’s for its initiative in employing people with disabilities; and Parents Helping Parents for hosting several workshops on raising a child with a disability.

Access for All is dedicated to breaking down physical, attitudinal, or informational barriers to equality for people with disabilities.
