Help create a more accessible world
By Kyann Flint
Established in 2016 by Daman Wandke, AbiliTrek is disability-owned and operated with the mission of improving accessibility so people can trek without boundaries. AbiliTrek offers a search and review platform and they consult on website and app accessibility, onsite accessibility, and speaking/training workshops.
Dedicated toward creating an accessible Bellingham, AbiliTrek presents its new Accessibility Certification Program (ACP) in partnership with Sustainable Connections. AbiliTrek’s ACP fosters an inclusive community by offering annual ACP memberships to local businesses. In qualifying as a member, a yearly audit of your onsite location will be provided to certify your business as accessible based on bathrooms, entrance/labeled alternative access, seating, service, and closed captioning. As a member, your certification is backed with a window decal that recognizes your business as welcoming to the disability community. Members will be promoted on AbiliTrek’s as well as Sustainable Connections’ websites. Annual price per location: $75 for Sustainable Connections’ members; $100 for non-members.
Accessible businesses are sustainable and provide equal opportunity for all. Join us in creating an accessible Bellingham!
