Tie Hardy (they/them)
Web Content Coordinator/ Web Designer

Hi everyone, I’m Tie Hardy (they/them) and I’m from Springfield, Massachusetts but have deep ties to Alabama and the DMV area. To really get to know me we have to start at my birth. There were a lot of gifts I was given but the ones that have particularly shaped me have been my cerebral palsy diagnosis, being trans/queer, and being black. I spend most of my time envisioning joyful and accessible black futures. In the midst of that liberation work I’m often looking at sci-fi afrofuturist media, listening to podcasts, being outside, traveling and singing. I currently work in Digital Accessibility spaces and am passionate about moving from standards only accessibility work to accessibility work that includes joy and delight.
