ACL Grassroots Project Webinar on Coalition Building Strategies and Disability Advocacy Perspectives
1:00 PM - 2:30 PM Eastern
Event Description

ACL’s Grassroots Project was launched in 2023 to support national, state, and local disability advocates in building networks to stay informed about the policies that affect people with disabilities and to work together to ensure their perspectives, priorities, and preferences are reflected in disability policies and service systems. 

This national webinar — the second hosted by the Grassroots Project — provides an opportunity to hear from community organizers and disability advocates about building coalitions by collaborating with local, state, and regional partners. This webinar will give attendees greater insight into strategies and tools for building coalitions that are sustainable and adaptable, as well as the challenges that inevitably present themselves. 

ASL interpretation, Spanish interpretation, and live English captions will be provided during the webinar. Please note, due to a recent Zoom update, full accessibility including ASL interpretation may not work if you are joining with a mobile device (ASL interpretation and slides can no longer be viewed simultaneously via phone or tablet). We have been in direct communication with Zoom to communicate this limitation and advocate for this barrier to be removed. ASL interpretation during this webinar will be available to those who join via desktop or laptop computer. In response to this accessibility limitation, we are engaging in a national advocacy effort with our partners to elevate this systemic accessibility issue to ensure Zoom makes the needed changes to their user design.
