Session Description

Does your communication plan ensure that social media reaches all members of the community? Preparedness and public safety messages miss a significant portion of the community if they cannot be accessed with assistive technology. Learn how to adapt your social media messages to make them accessible. Strategies to overcome common accessibility barriers will be discussed. Discover tools that you can start using today to improve the accessibility of your agency’s social media campaign.
