Did you know?
Section 508 of the federal Rehabilitation Act requires all federal agencies, employees and contractors to adhere to strict accessibility standards for all public materials. Its primary purpose is to provide individuals with disabilities access to, and use of, all public documents and information technology.

Why now?
Section 508 is not new but as of January 2018, all federal and public agencies, including the Chancellor’s Office and all California community colleges, are required BY LAW to follow these accessibility standards.

Where do I start?
