Making Community Connections

Community Connections

Stay connected. Those words mean so much more now that cold weather has moved us indoors and the pandemic has made it more challenging to connect with others.Making Community Connections is a community engagement initiative that empowers you to raise disability culture awareness.

Ways YOU Can Get Involved

We All Have A Story

Americans with Disabilities Act Celebration eNewsletter

Peer Support and Advocacy are two of Disability Network’s core services. We are helping people with disabilities live fully engaged and self-directed lives every day.  According to Disability Network’s Peer Advocacy Group Facilitator Demarie Jones, “While the ADA addresses many barriers for people with disabilities, there is still a lot of work to be done to build inclusive and accessible communities. Access is as individual as the person needing it.” Click here to read about real people and real stories that preserve, celebrate and advocate for the Americans with Disabilities Act in our Peer Advocacy eNewsletter.

Accessibility Statement

Disability Network Northern Michigan is committed to making its website accessible to the widest possible audience. This website has been developed to comply under Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act, which was enacted to eliminate barriers to information technology, to make available new opportunities for people with disabilities and to encourage the development of new technologies to help achieve these goals. This law requires that all individuals with disabilities have access to information and data comparable to that which is available to individuals without disabilities.

DisabilityNetwork.org is regularly monitored to ensure that it meets the requirements of Section 508, along with the best practices outlined by the W3C’s (World Wide Web Consortium’s) Web Accessibility Initiative, specifically WCAG (Web Content Accessibility Guidelines) Level A Compliance. We are diligently working to reach and maintain a higher standard of accessibility, which is Level AA Compliance of W3C’s WCAG standards. Because technology changes rapidly, this is an ongoing process.

If you experience any accessibility issues in relation to this website, please contact us. Let us know which page or item you need help with and we will provide a solution that works for you within a reasonable period of time. Questions, comments or complaints about the accessibility of our website, videos or documents can be sent to info@disabilitynetwork.net.
