In addition to this Facebook page, and knowing that Facebook is not where it needs to be from an accessibility perspective for everyone, a website and other communication channels will come online to help peple come together, and to help promote day's events as they get organized.
This initiative is still in its infancy. It's definitely community-driven, that means by you! For now, Like this page to express interest and to stay updated as the day takes shape. Post your thoughts on the idea of a Global Accessibility Awareness Day on the Wal and/or express interest in helping to organize an event in your city. We are going to need people who speak other languages to help us spread word about the day to truly make it global. Follow @GblA11yDay on Twitter. E-mail globala11yawarenessday at gmail.com.
Ultimately, the goal is to use one day, May 9, to raise the profile of and expand the conversation on digital accessibility beyond traditional audiences. It is not meant in any way to replace other efforts.
Let's see if we can do this, and have some fun at the same time.
