In the “new normal” since COVID-19, feminist and human rights organizations are innovating to be inclusive in online spaces. WLP Brazil (CEPIA) found a way to bring young leaders with auditory and visual disabilities to the (virtual) table.

When planning FIPA, the team at CEPIA dedicated themselves to learning new skills to reach their goal of digital accessibility. CEPIA staff worked with Brazilian Sign Language (LIBRAS) interpreters to ensure youth with hearing disabilities could participate. Furthermore, the team learned how to produce visual materials with audio descriptions to enhance access for people with visual impairments. During the recruitment process for the conference, CEPIA worked to ensure that information about the festival reached young leaders with disabilities. This learning process bolstered CEPIA’s organizational capacity, which will allow them to make virtual events accessible in the future.

CEPIA’s team effort led to powerful results.
