Make Events Accessible: A disability primer for organizers is a guide outlining how to make your academic events more accessible physically, financially, and emotionally for disabled people. Inside the guide you will find:
- an accessibility checklist
- a section breaking down why access matters
- two access stories from chronically ill students
- a glossary
As part of my ongoing commitment to accessible content, you can download a digital copy for free. Share the document with your friends, family, and community and adapt it to your own needs!
Please note that this is not the be-all and end-all guide on accessibility. For some, it will be a starting point. Accessibility is hard and cannot come from a single person. I have done my best to compile information in a single document that I hope some may find useful.
