Subject: [WebAIM] Accessibility Community Portal

One of our contracts involves the website of a state department of education with accessibility problems. The analysis, reporting, and remediation will take some time. To do something constructive right out of the gate, we'll be fielding an accessibility community portal. In short, this portal will seek to convert adversaries into allies. We'll invite stakeholders like teachers and students with accessibility issues to learn of our plans and to get involved -- from simple feedback to helping design the user survey form we'll be fielding after remediation.

My question is whether anyone has seen such a portal that we can review and learn from?

Note that such a portal is not the common disability page that presents the website manager's view of accessibility and how they've addressed the subject. It needs to be interactive and seeks to form a community through involvement. Such a portal is also not for a general accessibility community, but rather focused on the one website in the midst of accessibility remediation.
