This button is most likely in support of the disability rights movement that really started to gain ground and social awareness in the U.S. during the 1970s and 1980s. The specific goals and demands of the movement are: accessibility and safety in transportation, architecture, and the physical environment; equal opportunities in independent living, employment, education, and housing; and freedom from abuse, neglect, and violations of patients’ rights. The message of this specific button is most closely related to the issue of accessibility, suggesting that instead of the government funding the building of weapons, they should provide more funding for the building of wheelchair ramps.
