  • Buy local

Most UN SDGs can be tied to disability and accessibility, either directly or indirectly.

GOAL 1: No Poverty — People with disabilities are twice as likely to be at poverty level in the US due to the impact of inaccessible education and job discrimination on their earning abilities.

  • access to training inequalities;
  • unequal pay for identical work;
  • occupational segregation, and;
  • they rarely participate in economic decision making.

The world won’t be sustainable for anyone

until it is sustainable for everyone.
