Commitment

In response to current events, Executive Director Stephanie Quigley issued the following statement:

Abilities in Motion supports the right of any person with a disability to live an independent, self-determined life. Our advocacy does not stop there. We renounce discrimination of any kind and will not allow America to be overrun with hate and fear. We cannot stay silent and ignore blatant, systemic racism, and then again stay silent when justice is not served. Abilities in Motion will continue to fight against injustice, protect human rights, and be part of the change.”

Human Rights Team

Responding to the variety of current threats to human rights, such as voter suppression and racial inequality, Abilities in Motion formed a Human Rights Team consisting of a diverse group of AIM staff.

 

The Human Rights team will help identify and address inequality within the organization and in our community through timely social justice initiatives.

Mission
 

Abilities in Motion's Human Rights Team’s mission is to advocate, promote, and protect human rights for all.

Statement from Co-Chairs:

 

"Early in 2020, with the significant increase of social unrest in the United States of America, it became clear to Abilities in Motion that it was necessary to create a team of employees who will discuss issues related to human rights such as racism, police brutality, and LGBTQ+ concerns and come up with probable solutions.

Observing and acknowledging that there are Human Rights violations occurring on all fronts, Abilities in Motion has recently formed a Human Rights Team whose mission is to advocate, promote, and protect Human Rights for all.

The Human Rights Team has begun working both internally with our staff, as well as externally with our consumers and community, to address the issues of voter suppression, anxiety due to the recent pandemic and political climate, and create trainings to help educate and inform.

In the future, we hope to collaborate with agencies, local governments, and other members of the community to help address these issues."

Web Accessibility

Abilities in Motion is committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience, regardless of circumstance and ability. We aim to adhere as closely as possible to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.0, Level AA), published by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). These guidelines explain how to make Web content more accessible for people with disabilities. Adherence to these guidelines will help make the web more user friendly to everyone. While Abilities in Motion strives to adhere to the guidelines and standards for accessibility, it is not always possible to do so in all areas of the website and we are currently working to achieve this. Be aware that due to the dynamic nature of the website, minor issues may occasionally occur as it is updated regularly. We are continually seeking out solutions that will bring all areas of the site up to the same level of overall web accessibility.

If you have any comments and or suggestions relating to improving the accessibility of our site, please don't hesitate to contact our digital accessibility specialist Tyler Gogluizza at 610-376-0010 x174 or tgogluizza@abilitiesinmotion.org. Your feedback will help us make improvements.
