WFC accessibility policy follow up

World Fantasy Con 2016 has made an accessibility policy publicly available. Hooray!

But, er, it’s still not a great one and it doesn’t solve the issue of people having to pay more for the convention because they had to wait to find out what the accessibility policy is.

Mari Ness explains here why ADA compliance is not a guarantee that a convention is accessible. Read her blog post, it’s informative for anyone who has doesn’t understand some of the issues we’re talking about. Accessibility isn’t just about ramps, door widths, and induction loop systems. It’s about allowing everyone to participate in the full experience of a convention, no matter what their health or disability status is.
