<p><strong>Global Accessibility Awareness Day - Are you ready to take the next step?</strong></p>
<p><strong>Thursday, May 21, 2020</strong></p>
<p>Global Accessibility Awareness Day (GAAD) is celebrated this week! Let's get talking, learning, and thinking about digital accessibility and inclusion. GAAD always falls on the third Thursday of May each year.</p>
<p>Take the challenge! Engage yourself in one of these articles, activities, or resources for at least 15 - 30 minutes this week. Accessibility is a journey where we gain understanding and skills along the way. Will you take the next couple of steps on your journey? There is much to see and explore on this road. Push back the curtain and find some ways to make an even bigger impact.</p>
