For civic tech services to reach their full potential for people with disabilities, practitioners must commit to always designing and implementing with accessibility in mind. Failure to do so excludes a segment of the population that stands to gain the most from the provided service. As you become aware of and implement accessibility, you can do your part to ensure civic technologies can be accessed by a broader population.
We hope that you will find this guide useful in your conversations, and your civic tech projects.
