How AIR Helps Nonprofits & Artists Thrive



Knowbility’s Executive Director, Sharron Rush, and AIR Program Coordinator, Jayne Cravens, discuss how the Accessibility Internet Rally helps nonprofits, NGOs, charities, schools and artists (musicians, dancers, poets, painters, sculptors, etc.) welcome more people online and, therefore, more donors, volunteers, clients and other supporters and participants.

The Accessibility Internet Rally

Knowbility’s Accessibility Internet Rally (AIR) program brings communities together around the powerful idea that web inclusion means equal access for people with disabilities. Each year, we vibrantly demonstrate how this is true by enlisting teams of web pros to learn about inclusive, universal, accessible design and then use their new skills to build sites for NPO groups and artists.

Participating groups receive mentoring and the services of a professional design team to create an online presence that can reach everyone – regardless of disability. Join us to learn what all the excitement is about and how you can be one of 2019’s lucky AIR participants.

– How the Accessibility Internet Rally (AIR) program works.
– How people with disabilities access the web and why nonprofits should care.
