The 10 Principles of the Access Justice Framework
- Access is for everyone.
- Providing access is not about tokenization or virtue signaling; it is about equity.
- Access needs to be the default, not an add on. It is a right, not a privilege. It is not a special need.
- Contrasting access needs are real and are not a reason to avoid providing access, nor to discriminate.
- Access is about more than accommodating and assisting: it is about adapting the world to fit everyone.
- Barriers to access come from systemic oppression such as ableism, not from disability.
- Access is about inclusion of us – Nothing About Us Without Us – in leadership, governing, and decision-making.
- Time, money, energy, and safety are all access issues.
- Access, when equitable, is a form of justice.
- As the world changes, so do access needs. Access adapts.
