We would like to issue an open call to participate in an Accessibility
Sprint. The Sprint is an opportunity to bring together practitioners,
leaders, and visionaries in the field of accessibility with the goal of
promoting collaboration among individuals, institutions, and non-profit
organizations to more effectively solve the common challenges that we face
in making materials and technology accessible to all individuals.

Post-secondary institutions have common accessibility goals, as well as a
common desire to collaborate to meet those goals. This Sprint will help to
develop an infrastructure for collaboration and effective problem solving.
By the end of the Sprint, we hope to create small agile project groups that
will work together to develop creative solutions to the accessibility
challenges that we all face.

. What: Day-long Accessibility Collaborative Sprint on Tuesday, July
15, 2014, during the AHEAD pre-conference in Sacramento, CA

. When: Tuesday, July 15, 2014
