Amy Hogan, Co-chair of Access Matters Aotearoa, is here to guide you in initiating a conversation with your local MP about the need for strong accessibility legislation in Aotearoa New Zealand.
But what exactly do we mean by accessibility?
Access Matters firmly believes that accessibility legislation should encompass every facet of our lives. This legislation must extend its reach to goods, services and physical spaces. This includes the digital realm, both online platforms controlled by central and local government, as well as private businesses and organizations.
Share with your MP the reasons why accessibility holds immense significance and why this legislation should apply universally – to everyone, everything and everywhere. Let's work together for a more inclusive and accessible Aotearoa New Zealand!
