In the late 1960s, RI created[5] the ubiquitous International Symbol of Access, featuring a stylized person in a wheelchair on a blue background.

Founded in 1922,[3] RI is a network of people with disabilities, service providers, government agencies, academics, researchers and advocates working to improve the quality of life of people with disabilities.
