The ACCe5S! Project

The attached materials reflect the work we were doing to make our Chinatown site accessible until our then landlord forced us to move in July - August 2012.

Accessibility Challenge at Transitional Site:

In the process of finding a new location for encuentro5 during an unreasonably short time period, e5 transition members combed through the Downtown/Chinatown area, as well as neighboring areas, for a space that met its criteria, which included wheelchair accessibility.

With the help of several brokers and real estate agents, we explored a number of spaces that all fell short one way or another. Pressed for time and in consultation with allies in the disability community, we agreed to a space that was not currently wheelchair accessible strictly as a temporary, transitional site.

We reaffirm our commitment to equal access by (1) looking into the possibility of modifying the new location for accessibility and (2) planning on scouting out a new site within two years for a longer term property that is wheelchair accessible if modifications cannot be readily achieved.
