Jason is a quadriplegic wheelchair user from a spinal cord injury in 2000, after four years of teaching in Ohio in a temporary position, he has been offered a permanent professorship in theatre and disability studies at Hong Kong Baptist University.
As part of his job at Hong Kong Baptist University, Jason will help establish a collaborative disability studies program in Hong Kong and China. The one problem is that Hong Kong is not the most accessible city. Most businesses have at least one step, and the city is built on rocky and mountainous terrain.

Thank you everybody who has contributed so far and to all who have shared this elsewhere! I’m getting really close to the amount needed to make the down payment on the chair. Mobius Mobility requires a $5,000 deposit on the chair to get the process started. And once we reach that initial goal, then Help Hope Live can release the funds directly to Mobius. Thank you all so much!
