What we believe.
According to the CDC, 1 in every 4 people has a disability. Yet we consistently create barriers that stop people with disabilities from participating, both in-person and online. Individuals and families with disabilities often struggle to find places in their community where they can successfully shop, eat, and engage in community life.
Accessible Community exemplifies “Nothing about us without us.” Our non-profit is led by people with disabilities and caretakers who want to break down these barriers and create more accessible communities. Read our founder's story to learn more.
What we do.
- Empower people with disabilities to be part of the conversation about inclusion and accessibility in their communities by creating a safe platform to share positive experiences.
- Motivate organizations to include people with disabilities by making accessibility a visible market advantage.
