In living out our Principles, the Tree of Life Unitarian Universalist Congregation strives to welcome and affirm people of all abilities.
Nearly 50 million people (1 in 5 of the U.S. population) in the United States have a disability—visible or invisible, public or private. For everyone, whether having a disability or not, the environment in which we live, learn, play, sing, work, meditate, reflect, and pray must feel welcoming in order for everyone to grow and thrive. This includes our congregational websites.
Many congregations have had long-standing website practices for their websites that are not optimal, such as posting important content in non-searchable PDF files, making color choices that result in hard-to-read pages, not including alternate text for images or captions for videos.
