Our mission is to help create a more accessible digital world. 3Play It Forward supports organizations that are doing the same.
3Play Media Cares About Accessibility
We love solutions that benefit the communities we serve and understand how important it is to shine a spotlight on accessibility. 3Play It Forward helps support organizations who share the same mission. On Giving Tuesday, we give back to charities focused on creating a more accessible world. We celebrate GAAD to help raise awareness for digital access and inclusion, and ACCESS FOR ALL was created to help make media content surrounding social justice accessible to the d/Deaf and hard of hearing community.
Giving Tuesday was created in 2012 as a global movement to inspire charity and generosity in communities everywhere.
3Play celebrates Giving Tuesday each year by donating to organizations focused on creating an accessible world. This year, we’re supporting the GAAD (Global Accessibility Awareness Day) Foundation! The GAAD Foundation is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to disrupt the culture of technology and digital product development to include accessibility as a core requirement.
Global Accessibility Awareness Day (GAAD)
The goal of Global Accessibility Awareness Day (GAAD) is to raise awareness for digital access and to focus on inclusion for the more than one billion people around the world with disabilities.
Each year for GAAD, 3Play Media chooses a different disability-focused organization to support. Past organizations include the Boston Center for Independent Living, Wheelchairs in Motion, and Divas with Disabilities.
Additionally, we host internal and external webinars each year to promote accessibility for GAAD. Our public-facing events include events like:
- Lessons Learned: Canada’s Past, Present, and Future Leadership in Digital Accessibility
- Disability Culture with Lachi
- GAAD with 3Play
Internally, we have worked with organizations such as Inclusively and LaVant Consulting to educate our teams on accessibility awareness and disability justice. We are also part of the Valuable 500’s Directory for Disability Inclusion, a resource featuring digital, physical, and cognitive accessibility expertise. As one of 77 organizations selected globally by an independent expert review panel, this appointment demonstrates our ongoing support of and commitment to disability inclusion.
Access for All
More and more media content is being produced online to support education and activism around social justice. We believe this content is critically important and everyone deserves access to it. To that end, we’ve created ACCESS FOR ALL to help make this content accessible to the d/Deaf and hard of hearing community, and we are covering the cost of transcription and captioning to do so.
