We believe social media should be accessible – which is why we use captions, audio description and transcripts for our videos, and image descriptions and alt text on social media images.

We know there are still barriers, and we don’t have all the answers (or the power to change platforms), but we’ll continue to advocate for and push our creative process to include a fully accessible digital environment. If you have suggestions for how we can improve our accessibility, please email us at [email protected].
