"Every New Zealander should be able to fully participate in society, have the opportunity to learn, to get a job, and to take part in community and social life. Without government action to ensure all businesses, buildings, and services are accessible, one in four of us continue to be excluded from accessing or fully participating in parts of life that other Kiwis take for granted."  - The Access Alliance
