The time for digital accessibility is now. More than 500 lawsuits were filed in 2021 against companies whose digital accessibility wasn’t in compliance with the law—and nonprofits are not exempt from these lawsuits. Folks with disabilities have $3B in disposable income, and they are inadvertently being turning away by companies not in compliance. It’s time for all organizations to adopt a policy of full digital accessibility. Disability justice is often the last frontier and most often forgotten aspect of DEI work. Let’s change that and create digital spaces that are welcoming to all.
