Radical Accessibility Inspires Leadership (RAIL) is an open-source event planning toolkit that creates greater awareness and understanding for making things accessible to all people. Accessible spaces are safe, comfortable, and navigable for all different kinds of bodies and abilities; accessible programming or materials are clear, understandable, and considerate of all kinds of minds and learning styles. To create space and programming while considering the whole human spectrum of experience, form, and ability, is to practice what is here referred to as “Radical Accessibility.” For the purposes of the Blueprint, the term “open source” refers to the methods for distribution and dissemination of the RAIL toolkit and related resources. The resource will exist online in an assistive tech-friendly, free-to-download format.
