Help Make DC Restaurants Accessibility Friendly: Take Our 2 minute Survey

Friday, March 14, 2014

The Office of Human Rights (OHR) -- in partnership with the American Association for People with Disabilities (AAPD), DC Department of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs (DCRA), DC Office of Disability Rights (ODR), and the Restaurant Association Metropolitan Washington (RAMR) -- will release a new user-friendly guide for restaurant owners on how to make their establishments accessibility friendly. 

The guide goes beyond the typical structural elements associated with accessibility, to include best practices for serving customers with disabilities, and how to implement accessible friendly policies that can increase customers. Restaurants receiving the guide will also be asked to make a pledge to be accessibility friendly, and to place a window decal on their restaurant to let patrons know.

In the next few weeks, OHR will launch an on-the-ground effort in two District restaurant corridors to talk with restaurant owners and managers about accessibility issues, and we want you to choose them! Please fill out the brief survey below.  Access it by copying and pasting the link into your browser window.
