Reaching most citizens with crucial COVID-19 updates, instructions, and safety instructions is not good enough. Your administration’s message needs to reach every single member of your community, including the one-in-five living with a disability. With the foundation of your COVID-19 communication strategy being digital, now is the time to assess your Americans with Disability Act (ADA) compliance and ensure your critical updates are reaching every citizen in a consumable manner.
Join Don Torrez, CivicPlus Partner Manager for Accessibility Solutions, for Part VI of our Governing Through Crisis Series. Don will discuss strategy for embedding accessibility best practices into your emergency response communications and share how to automate critical compliance actions to expedite your message distribution.
