How Accessible is Your Congregation?

Is your congregation accessible? The Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) curriculum, "Weaving the Fabric of Diversity: An Anti-Bias Program for Adults," includes an exercise to help determine your degree of accessibility, covering architecture (ramps, elevators, parking, washrooms); communication (sound systems, large-print orders of service); and attitude (awareness programs, involvement with groups institutionally housed nearby). The curriculum addresses racism, ableism, heterosexism, ageism, and classism. Available through the UUA Bookstore. The UUA's accessibility resource contact is the Office of Accessibility Concerns: access [at] uua [dot] org.
