Accessible Social Media

Wednesday, May 19, 2021, 11 a.m.

Join us in honor of Global Accessibility Awareness Day, by learning how to create accessible social media with Sam Kelly.
Sam will showcase various platforms including Facebook, Instagram and Twitter on how to use built-in accessibility features to allow people with disabilities equal access to social media content. This presentation will allow many to learn the ways and easy steps to make their social media pages accessible for all.

Sam Kelly (she, her, hers) is a hype woman for accessibility and smiles. She is Bolivian-American, a multipotentialite and a nonprofit community builder currently serving at Americares, a global nonprofit, where she leverages all social in support of improving global health.⁣ Sam is an abolitionist for injustice and because of her multiple intersectionalities, she’s a crusader of human-service over human-centered design specializing in accessible social media.

American Sign Language (ASL) interpreters and live captions will be available. For other reasonable accommodation requests, contact DCPLaccess@dc.gov or 202-727-2142.
