LARSON, LANGEVIN SUPPORT BOUNDLESS PLAYGROUNDS INITIATIVE

WASHINGTON ? U.S. Representatives John B. Larson (CT-1) and Jim Langevin (RI-2) released the following statement today:

?As we recognize the 16th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act this July 26, we are proud to join together in support of equal access and opportunity for the millions of Americans with disabilities. Today we are coming together to share the importance of accessibility on playgrounds for children with disabilities. We must support the construction of ?Boundless? playgrounds so that children of all abilities can learn and play together. We encourage our colleagues in Congress and elected officials at all levels to work to ensure that all children can have equal access and equal opportunity to play together. There should be ?No Child Left on the Side,? and we commend the efforts of Boundless Playgrounds, Hasbro, Inc. and GameTime as they launch this national campaign to make a difference in children's lives and ultimately to see a Boundless Playground in every community, for every child.?
