For young Oliver Garza-Pena, the trip to the store was like any other. But then he looked up and saw someone staring back who looked just like him.
In 2014, H&R Block paid $145,000 to settle a suit filed by the U.S. Justice Department that claimed the company’s website, created by HRB Digital LLC, violated Title III of the Americans with Disabilities Act. In 2008, Target was forced to pay $6 million in damages related to its online checkout process.
Just a few short months ago, it seemed as though the whole world was in an uproar about Target and their “All inclusive/transgender/ bi-sexual/gay bathroom” policy. People were talking about it.
Companies are releasing new inclusive lines that solve some of the dressing challenges that people with physical and mental disabilities face.
Target’s latest women’s fashion line was designed with all bodies in mind, including those with disabilities and sensory-sensitivities. On Monday, Target announced its clothing line, Universal Thread, will feature sensory-friendly and adaptive clothing items.
As part of its popular Cat & Jack Line, Target will soon launch adaptive apparel with features for kids with disabilities.
