Announcing our Accessibility Certification Program

Dedicated toward creating an accessible Bellingham, we present our new Accessibility Certification Program (ACP) in partnership with Sustainable Connections. Our ACP fosters an inclusive community by offering an annual ACP membership to local businesses here in Bellingham. 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 our’s as well as Sustainable Connections’ websites. Annual price per location: $75 for Sustainable Connections’ members; $100 for non-members.

Join us and Sustainable Connections on July 2, 11:45 pm to 1:15 pm at the Community Food Co-Op Classroom for a disability etiquette workshop with information about the ACP.

Accessible businesses are sustainable and provide equal opportunity for all. Join us in creating an accessible Bellingham!
