In 2018, after sustained pressure by accessibility advocates like you, the government committed to designing an approach to achieve a fully accessible New Zealand, including how legislation could help achieve this.
It’s now time for the government to make good its commitment. We’re calling for the introduction of an Accessibility Act in 2020 and we need your voice.
You’re are invited to the #AccessLaw2020 Forum to find out how we can take action collectively to make 2020 the year for Accessibility. Bring your friends and whanau and help make history!
