“We all recognize the typical symbol on accessible bathrooms and parking spaces, right? It is of a weird stick-like person sitting in a 20th century asylum-looking wheelchair. Well, on a parking space it kind of looks like somebody in a wheelchair had fallen sideways and somebody made an outline of it with white spray paint. How funny would it be to align one’s body and wheelchair on top of this symbol? This is what we had to do.”

Rooted In Rights Editor Emily Ladau Instagrammed this photo of “Are you OK?” carved into a curb cut while visiting Chinatown in Washington, D.C., and we’d like the introspective vandal to know that yes, yes we are.
