Activists during the press conference
On the sidewalk outside of a Duane Reade store in Manhattan on 38th Street and 7th Avenue, some activists and reporters are seen at the press conference announcing the Duane Reade settlement to have their chain of stores accessible to people with disabilities. Pictured (from left to right): Carr Massi (far left, holding a sign reading WE SHOP), Luda Demikhovskaya (left-of-center, with a sign on her lap reading ACCESS IS GOOD FOR BUSINESS), Toby Edwards (center, holding a sign reading WHERE WHEELCHAIRS GO SHOPPING CARTS AND STROLLERS FOLLOW), Jean Ryan (pictured right-of-center, holding three signs, each reading DISABLED IN ACTION EQUAL ACCESS, WHERE WHEELCHAIRS GO STROLLERS AND SHOPPING CARTS FOLLOW, and BUILD RAMPS NOT STEPS), Marty Sesmer (pictured behind and to the right of Jean, holding sign reading DISABLED IN ACTION), and a man standing holding a sign reading ACCESS YES! STEPS NO!. Many of the people shown in the photograph are seen looking to the right to where Ramon Santos (not pictured) was speaking.
