In these moments of emergency and trauma, is it OK to address accessibility practices? As digital content is quickly pushed to the front, how are we as a sector remaining vigilant on providing accessible information? Please join us in a Community Discussion on What Access Means Now within our digital environments. Safety, community, flexibility, and stamina are all part of the conversation. Despite the murky horizon, the journey towards universal participation is still relevant. For if not now, when?
A mix of resources, strategies, and obligations will be discussed to support the nonprofit sector.
