Accessibility Statement

The Resource Sharing Project is committed to providing a fully accessible website experience for all users of all abilities, including those who rely on assistive technologies like screen readers, screen enlargement software, and alternative keyboard input devices to navigate the web.

Ongoing Efforts to Ensure Accessibility

Access is love. RSP continually strives to make our website and materials inclusive and accessible to everyone in our commitment to ending oppression. If you are using assistive technologies and are having difficulty using our website, please email RSP Assistant Director Kris Bein at or RSP Director Cat Fribley at, or give us a call at (515) 401-8722.

We follow the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) version 2.1 as our guiding principle for determining accessibility. These are internationally agreed-upon standards that cover a wide range of recommendations and best practices for making content useable. As we add new pages and functionality to our website, all designs, code, and content entry practices are checked against these standards.

Website accessibility is an ongoing process. We continually test content and features for WCAG 2.1 Level AA compliance and remediate any issues to ensure we meet or exceed the standards. Testing of our website is performed by our team members using industry-standard tools such as the Accessibility Checker WordPress Plugin, color contrast analyzers, keyboard-only navigation techniques, and Flesch-Kincaid readability tests.

Where We’re Improving

Many of our resources and content were created many years ago and we’re working to improve the accessibility of this older content. In our efforts to bring our website up to standard, we are targeting the following areas:

  • Improving PDF accessibility
  • Adding additional translations and alternate language versions of materials
  • Rewriting ambiguous link anchors
  • Improving heading structure

This is part of our broader effort to make everyone’s experience at the Resource Sharing Project a welcoming and enjoyable one. Please note that while we make every effort to provide information accessible for all users, we cannot guarantee the accessibility of third-party websites to which we may link.
