The City of Richmond is developing the Richmond Accessibility Plan (2023–2028). The Plan is intended to guide the City’s work to advance accessibility in the community, in collaboration with community organizations and residents. Community members with disabilities, their families and caregivers are invited to participate in one of the upcoming focus groups that will help shape the new accessibility plan. Please join in and share your ideas on how the City can identify, prevent and remove barriers for people with disabilities in the community.

Accessibility: The City of Richmond strives to host events that are accessible and inclusive for everyone. American Sign Language interpretation and closed captioning will be provided. If you have any other accessibility needs that we can accommodate, please note them when you register.
