Be the change we wish to see in the world. That is just what the staff of the NRCDV had in mind when we launched the Access Initiative in 2006. The Initiative represented NRCDV's organizational commitment -- as an employer, service provider, and community member -- to individuals with disabilities and accessibility in general.
This resource page describes the story of the Access Initiative, offers definitions of key terms, and provides an overview of our key activities and accomplishments. Also included are lessons learned and recommendations, a list of materials and resources to support continued learning in this area, and links to organizations that focus on promoting accessibility and civil rights for people with disabilities.
