What does it mean to be accessible?
"All of our bodies change over time. We all deserve dignity and access at every stage of our lives. Most people will need to seek accessibility solutions at some point, whether for a family member, a colleague, or for oneself. Disability is part of the human experience. We all need to engage in the work to make our world accessible to everyone”.
- Haben Girma, DeafBlind Lawyer and Activist
Because disability is part of the human experience, accessibility is a celebration of the human experience. Accessibility activists of the '60s and '70s fought to make this moral decency part of our nations laws. It is our responsibility to uphold their fight; it is our privilege to make space in our schedules and budgets to create accessible content and spaces. Celebrate the fullness of humanity and connect your projects with the legacy of accessibility activists.
