Disability and Accessibility Working Group

Join this group

This group would aim to report on, follow, discuss, and advocate for general disablity and accessibility issues, including on the Halifax Media Coop website itself.

Possible goals for this group would include adding transcripts to video and audio content, and descriptions of photographs, as well as evaluating websites for accessibility.

Other issues are related to this group, such as Health Care, Advocacy, Poverty-reduction, Transportation, and Affordable Housing, especially fully-accessible housing.
