The mission of Access Together is to provide tools for citizens to collect, share and act on accessibility information in their community. The accessibility of our communities directly impacts who we will pass on the street, who is included in local conversations and who we consider to be our neighbors. Inclusive access to community information and access to buildings, events, and transportation ensures equal rights for all, and diversity in thoughts and actions as we interact in times of need and celebration. Access Together will enable people with disabilities, their family, friends, and neighbors to crowd-source a community’s accessibility information. Similar to a Foursquare check-in, a user will open Access Together on their mobile phone’s web browser, find their location, and supply answers to accessibility questions. For example “Is the entrance wheelchair accessible?”.
