Libby and the Cape of Visitability

In Libby and the Cape of Visitability, Libby, who uses a wheelchair, doesn't get invited to a friend's house for a birthday party, and her feelings are hurt. The friends then meet an athlete who uses a wheelchair and learns about the disability rights movement. They are shown a picture of a public protest where wheelchair users block inaccessible buses. This spurs the kids to stage their own public demonstration toward the goal of step-free entrances to new homes and wider bathroom doors to ensure that all newly constructed homes are "visitable" by everyone!
