Publication Date: 2002
Paper discusses the Accessibility Internet Rally, which was started by Knowbility, Incorporated. Knowbility is an organization founded in 1999 to promote access to technology for people with disabilities. Accessibility Internet Rallies are events in which web designers create accessible websites free of charge for nonprofit organizations that serve people with diverse needs throughout the community. Teams of web designers often create up to 25 sites per day, as Accessibility Internet Rallies bring designers, information technology trainers, local educational institutions, and various agencies that serve people with disabilities together for a common goal. The rallies help to promote awareness about access to information technology resources for people with disabilities, while they also encourage partnerships between the disability community and the private, nonprofit, and government sectors.
