In American Samoa, groups advocating the rights of people with special needs are pushing for improved services.
The chair of the American Samoa Intergovernmental Disabilities Council says even the basic rights guaranteed under the Americans with Disabilities Act are ignored in the territory.
Tafa Tupuola says they face continuing concerns over health care, employment, transportation, education and recreation.
"So we wanted to basically advocate out there that we need to educate the public, inform the house of legislature basically on the enforcement of ADA and that there is more to ADA than just ramps and parking."
