Today, *Thursday May 18 2017*, is the sixth annual *Global Accessibility
Awareness Day <http://globalaccessibilityawarenessday.org/>* (GAAD). The
purpose of GAAD is to get everyone talking, thinking and learning about
digital (web, software, mobile, etc.) access/inclusion and people with
different disabilities. The target audience of GAAD is the design,
development, usability, and related communities who build, shape, fund and
influence technology and its use. While people may be interested in the
topic of making technology accessible and usable by persons with
disabilities, the reality is that they often do not know how or where to
start. *Awareness comes first.*

Read the *blog post by Joe Devon
originally inspired GAAD.

first-hand*. <http://globalaccessibilityawarenessday.org/participate.html>
