Who: This event is hosted by Jewish Learning Venture’s “Whole Community Inclusion,” JFCS of Greater Philadelphia and the Jewish Special Needs/Disability Inclusion Consortium of Greater Philadelphia.

All community members are invited to join us. This is a great event for youth groups, inclusion committees, individuals and groups of friends!
What: Participants will meet at JFCS at 2pm for an opening presentation. You will then be given a map of a small area where you will go and identify the accessibility of local stores and restaurants and record that information in a smartphone app called “Access Earth.” Access Earth is a new mobile and online website aiming to become the world’s leading provider
of accessible venue information.

At 3:30pm, participants will return to JFCS for a light snack and to enjoy an exhibit of art focusing on disability awareness.

Where: JFCS – Barbara and Harvey Brodsky Enrichment Center
345 Montgomery Ave, Bala Cynwyd, PA 19004

When: April 7, 2019—2-4pm

Why: YOU can help to make our community become more inclusive for everyone by helping us to identify and map accessible locations throughout the Greater Philadelphia area.

“When Access Earth becomes as mainstream as Yelp, businesses will be continually striving to improve their accessibility ratings to attract more customers,” said Access Earth Advisory Board Member Kathryn Rose.
