For Disability Activists, 3 Weeks In Oregon Is A Game Changer

Until she came to the U.S. this summer, Wendy Beatriz Caishpal Jaco had never been able to board a bus. Jaco, 29, uses a wheelchair, which buses aren't able to accommodate in her hometown of Ahuachapán in El Salvador. She finally got on a bus that could handle a wheelchair while attending a program called WILD — the Women's Institute on Leadership and Disability, held this summer in Eugene, Ore.
