Accessibility for remote meetings

On July 26, 2020 our nation celebrated the 30th anniversary of the signing of the Americans with Disabilities Act into law. Learn what King County is doing to provide equal access to employment, transportation, housing, education, health care, recreation, and community life. 

WTD’s Coal Creek team will celebrate #ADA30 with some help for everyone in a challenging time, when virtual meetings help us to connect safely with others. Watch the video below to see how you can make video calls and remote meetings more accessible for everyone in your workplace, community, and organization!

Our commitment to you

Whether you live, work, recreate or commute in the area, we know you’ll have questions and concerns about this project. King County is committed to keeping you up-to-date. Before COVID-19 precautions, we would have been hosting on-site events to talk to you one-on-one about the project. We can't be there with you, but we are here for you.

If you are interested in scheduling an individual meeting or briefing for your community organization, please contact Monica Van der Vieren at monica.vandervieren@kingcounty.gov or 206-477-5502.
