Guidelines to Making Your Event Accessible to Persons with Disabilities:

When planning events open to the public, be sure your organization's events are accessible for people with disabilities. For example the event may require a sign language interpreter, large print handouts, or simply making sure that the room you reserve is easily accessible.
