Increases the visibility of Access for All through a variety of activities, including public speaking engagements, media stories, community fairs, distribution of information and materials (magnets, bumper stickers, etc.).

AFA Community Partnerships

Access for All is proud of the collaborative work we are doing with other organizations in our community. These are some of the partnerships we have developed:

Help America Vote

Access for All commends the SLO County Clerk-Recorder Office for all of their efforts in supporting voter and polling place accessibility. Assisting People with Disabilities offers valuable suggestions for workers in the polling place. And San Luis Obispo voters with disabilities have several options that provide a private and independent voting environment.

Activity 4 All

Activity4All (A4A) is focused on providing and promoting physical activity for people with disabilities. People with disabilities need physical activity as much, if not more, than people without disabilities.
