There are so many ways to start or continue your accessibility journey!

Organizations: Improve Accessibility, Expand Audience

Join the new Creating Accessible Communities FaceBook Group for kind, proactive, solution-oriented conversations about how small organizations and communities can best engage and support people with disabilities. We bring together small business owners, community organization leaders, people with disabilities, and experts in accessibility and universal design to discuss challenges and solutions.

Another great way to get started is to make sure your website is accessible. We can help with that! Sign up for a free accessibilty evaluation of your website. We will conduct an evaluation and provide suggestions on how to make your site accessible to people who are blind, have limited vision or mobility, experience seizures, are Deaf, or have limited mobility. Expand your website’s audience!

Email info@accessiblecommunity.org if you would like to assess the accessibility of an organization’s facilities, events, practices, or social media.
