Indiana Governor’s Council for People with Disabilities awards activist
Linda Muckway, a disability activist, was recently given the Indiana Governor’s Council for People with Disabilities’ Distinguished Leadership Award for a Person with a Disability. Muckway, herself, uses a motorized wheelchair. The Governor’s office gives out the award annually to recognize leadership and disability advocacy across the state.
One of Muckway’s most notable achievements was the creation of a 24-hour disability accessible taxi service. In addition, she is the chair of the City/County Council for People with Disabilities and several other committees. Furthermore, she frequently testifies in court on behalf of people with disabilities.
The Indiana Governor’s Council for People with Disabilities began giving out the award in 2006 and “works to change Indiana public policy so Hoosiers with disabilities can live independently, work productively and be included fully in community life”.
