The Boston Globe printed a great accessible currency article on April 19, focusing on the Perkins School’s official support of the friend-of-the-court brief being written by Yale Law students Cyrus Habib and Jon Finer with Professor Harold Hongju Koh.

I think this quote at the end of the Globe article says it all:

Jason Campbell, a 21-year-old Perkins student, said not being able to handle money reinforces stereotypes about blind people.

“They think blind people can’t do much,” he said. “If they don’t give you a chance, you can’t prove them wrong. And maybe they don’t want to be proven wrong.”
