Today’s post is one that I have been wanting to publish for a few weeks now, and I’m so excited that everything is official and I can share the news!
On Saturday, July 27, Accessible YOUniverse, alongside The Dane Foundation, will be hosting the Inaugural Ramping the Divide Summit. The Summit will be a hands-on workshop, where members of the disability community and interested allies come together to discuss the “state of the union” of accessibility in Pittsburgh, and come up with priorities to address moving forward. I’m especially excited because I’ll be holding the Summit in honor of the anniversary of the signing of the Americans with Disabilities Act, which is perfect.
I think it’s so important to bring the disability community together to discuss the pressing issues, and to make sure that whatever is tackled first is what we decide is most important! Too often, other people make decisions for us, but I want to make sure that the voices of people with disabilities themselves are highlighted.
I’d love for you to join me at the Summit! All of the event and registration information can be found here. I’m also looking for volunteers for the day of! If you’re interested, send me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. I’m so excited, and I’d love to have you all there with me!
