About America’s Freedom Sailor
Tall Ship for All! Based on the goals of Universal Design.
Based in New Orleans, LA, America’s Freedom Sailor will design, build and operate the first and only tall ship for all in the world, based on the goals of Universal Design, to enable those with disabilities to sail alongside their able-bodied family and friends, spreading awareness and goodwill.
According to the U.S. Census Bureau, 2013, there are over 70 million people with disabilities in the U.S., as well as thousands of wounded American soldiers. Our goal is to accommodate all people including the elderly and people with disabilities, along with their family and friends, to explore the high seas. New Orleans is a major port city, and the perfect location to launch America’s Freedom Sailor. This innovative concept will introduce shipbuilding and universal design to the world. The time is now for America to spread goodwill globally and become the leader in the advancement of people with disabilities.
