We are just over two weeks from this year's Global Accessibility
Awareness Day (GAAD) on May 15.

So far, public events marking GAAD have been announced for:
Brisbane, Melbourne, and Sydney Australia;
Brussels and Mons Belgium;
Montreal Canada;
Brno Czech Republic;
Tokyo Japan;
Lugano Switzerland; and
Boston, Detroit, Los Angeles, and San Francisco in the USA.
To learn more and to register to attend these events, and to learn
about a virtual event on social media accessibility organized by Danya
International see

If you live in or near London UK, the User Experience Professionals'
Association (UK) is looking for speakers, demos and posters for a GAAD
event there.

Companies, government agencies and schools will be marking GAAD. See a
sampling at http://www.globalaccessibilityawarenessday.org/activities.html

It's definitely not too late to get involved. Why not hold an
Accessibility Clinic in your community http://bit.ly/QzWpbC

If you are planning an event or need ideas, e-mail Joe Devon and
myself at <EMAIL REMOVED> .

There's definitely More to come.
