Ensuring Social Media Accessibility

Are your social media posts accessible to users with disabilities? Many people with disabilities rely on social media to learn about critical news, important resources and opportunities for community participation. Far too often, we leave them out of the conversation if we aren’t intentional about accessibility. We’ll highlight built-in accessibility features, demo best practices in making posts accessible, and share resources for effective communication with citizens with disabilities.
