What is the new Accessibility Icon.

In 2010 activists who were concerned with the rights of disabled people were unhappy with the original icon and wanted to show that the whole point of the ADA was to enable people with disabilities to be able to more sfreely go where they needed to go. In the past few years more states and municipalites are now using it.
