2023 Digital Accessibility Legal Update with Lainey Feingold – Part One
Join us for our 2023 Digital Accessibility with Lainey Feingold! This year’s legal update is in two-parts, taking place on Thursday, November 30th and Thursday, December 7th at 2 PM ET.
Part One Overview:
Digital accessibility is a civil right of people with disabilities, and a lot is happening in the digital accessibility legal space in the United States. Potential new accessibility laws are pending in Congress. Potential new regulations have been introduced by federal agencies. Using existing law, these same agencies offer guidance about accessibility – including AI (Artificial Intelligence) tools, health tech, higher ed, and more. State governments are passing laws and writing policies impacting digital accessibility.
On the ground, disabled people, both with and without lawyers, use existing laws to advance inclusion in the digital space. Lawsuits are filed, judges make decisions, and accessibility settlements are negotiated. We must pay attention to the new developments, and we must not wait for them.
Part One of this year’s Digital Accessibility Legal Update will share the latest information about what is happening in the United States in a straightforward way designed for everyone.
