On the 21st April a group of Akita City’s group “Living Town Society” with aims towards the self-support of persons with disabilities held a lecture on the theme of “thinking about independent living” in the Kamikita Kamigata school building. Approximately 50 people including people with disabilities and their families listened to experiences of persons with disabilities who are independent from their parents and facilities.

Mutomi Sugawara, 40, the company’s president and Mr. Shinbashi, said that while sending a wheelchair living due to cervical spine injuries at birth, we worked on visiting nursing care and consultation support project for persons with disabilities. In March 2018, five people, including classmates from the Katsuhei School for the Advancement of Schools (now Akita Kirari Support School), launched a party, saying, “We want to advance the making of living areas where people with disabilities can live.”
