a9. ACCESSIBILITY.

Sorry I had to shout but I sure didn't hear when I was one of the abled folk. I did what I THOUGHT would help, but in reality, I had to stop going to my favorite events, to protest, to marches because they are NOT ACCESSIBLE to me. #SpoonieChat
a9. Example of when an event is somewhat accessible but the instructions are not so much. I pointed this out and got dragged for it of course. #spooniechat
a9. So being the busy-body that I am, I tried to create an organization to make any event we'd want to attend accessible via digital connection. #spooniechat
a9. The idea was, if for example a protest isn't accessible, then we could attend via a collection of video provided by volunteers. And if there were no volunteers, we could send someone. Then we'd get the video and make it accessible to as many types of disabilities as we can.
a9. I also thought it would be cool if we rated the accessibility of an event, or make it a point to provide a standard list of what made a protest, march, conference or event accessible to all. #spooniechat
a9. So of course, I not only got sick, but also found out when I was better that the process of getting things off the ground was not as accessible as I remember. And being short on funds I had to "back burner" the project. #spooniechat
a9. Link to the idea thread. Which I will continue to pursue when my money is stable. Check the date- in my abled days, even in my 2014 #spoonie days, I could have gotten this idea off the ground by myself in a week.

unroll please
UGH the #accessibility idea thread from the beginning.
