Accessibility During Pride Celebration for People with Disabilities

Accessibility During Pride Celebration for People with Disabilities

Hello, and greetings from the Pride committee!  We’re all so very much looking forward to the Burlington Pride celebration this coming September.  It may seem like a world away (we haven’t even hit summer yet!), but your faithful Pride committee is already hard at work. 

This year, we’ll be taking steps to increase accessibility during Pride celebration for people with disabilities.  To that end, we’ll start by asking you, your family, and your friends, a few survey questions.  These will help us discover what Pride celebration can do to energize equal and easeful access for all.  The survey is anonymous and is for informational purposes only.

Here is the survey link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/prideaccess

Thank you for taking the time to answer this 9-question survey!
