Foundation Accessibility, Inclusion, Diversity, and Equity (AIDE) Commitment
The Foundation Fighting Blindness is committed to providing and advancing accessibility, inclusion, diversity, and equity in all aspects of our work. We believe that everyone deserves equal access to resources and opportunities regardless of their disability, race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, age, religion, socioeconomic background, or any other characteristics that makes us unique, such as diverse cognitive skills and individual talents.
We recognize that everyone deserves the opportunity to participate fully and equally in all aspects of society and that accessibility is not just about physical barriers, but also about social, economic, and cultural barriers. We offer resources, information, and community to individuals and families affected by vision loss, and we strive to do so in a way that is inclusive and respectful of their unique experiences and identity. We are dedicated to ensuring that our programs, resources, and events are accessible to all individuals.
We understand the importance of promoting diversity and equity within our organization and in the broader community. We embrace and celebrate the diverse backgrounds, experiences, and identities of our community, actively working to remove barriers and foster an inclusive environment. And through this commitment we will continue to educate ourselves on matters related to accessibility, inclusion, diversity, and equity, and we will collaborate with other organizations, experts, and advocates to promote these values and advance progress towards a more inclusive society.
