Making your activism accessible


This quick guide was created to support activists in making their spaces more accessible, to ensure everyone is welcome and encouraged to join movements in whatever way they can. The information included comes from existing organizer databases and resources by movement thinkers. We’ve included resources from blogs written by people living with accessibility needs, as we consider them experts on this topic. Each personal experience is distinct, thus we encourage further insight from different positionalities on this topic.

Note: This guide is a compilation of grassroots knowledge intended for grassroots activists. It was developed as a rapid response to a question raised by organizers and so it applies a more simplified editing and vetting process.

Input and resources for this draft were provided by:

The Climate Justice Organizing HUB, drawing from its community and resources identified in the Attribution section of the guide.

This guide was prepared by: 

Kenzie Harris and Isabelle Grondin Hernandez
