Community is defined broadly to encompass transportation, places of business, and public facilities including parks and walkways. Community self advocacy is often geared toward requesting:
- A modification to a building or facility, such as installation of a power-assist door or a curb cut for better accessibility.
- An amendment to policies or practices to create a more accommodating or welcoming environment for people with disabilities.
- An apology for an inappropriate past action or statement.
