Today we proudly celebrate the 31st anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act. Though our nation has made progress in creating an inclusive society for people with disabilites, the calls we receive requesting our legal help tell us we all still have a lot to accomplish.
The pandemic brought heightened attention to accessibility issues with voting, health care, housing, employment, and more. Online inaccessibility also became more apparrent during the pandemic since many services went virtual – and many with disabilities were unable to access them.
So this year, we'd like to ask you to help us celebrate the ADA by doing what you can to create a more inclusive online space. This month’s newsletter provides useful tips that anyone can put into practice so together we can make the digital world fully accessible to people with disabilities.
In addition to using this information for yourself, remember to pass it on to the folks you work with who are responsible for your company’s online presence.
