As part of Embassy Tbilisi’s efforts to erase the stigma of people with disabilities and help the disabled lead fuller lives, Public Affairs invited filmmaker Jason DaSilva to discuss his film “When I Walk” and introduce ways to help the disabled.  As part of the program, on April 25 Mr. DIMG_1261aSilva and Public Affairs partnered with various Georgian civil society groups to lead an exercise that creates a map that makes it easier for people with disabilities to find restaurants, shops, and other facilities that are accessible.  Participants rated nearby establishments then entered the info into the AXS Map app, which is free and viewable online.
