The Project Team

WIP Collaborative, a shared feminist practice of independent design professionals, Verona Carpenter Architects, a full service architecture and interiors firm, and the Design Trust will serve as the project co-leads, working with community partners to shepherd the initiative, including the Center for Independence of the Disabled-NY and INCLUDEnyc. The project is guided by an Advisory Committee, a diverse group of self-advocates and community leaders.
