Equal Access Guide for Meetings, Conferences, Large Assemblies and Worship
A Resource from the NCC Committee on Disabilities

The National Council of Churches' Committee on Disabilities, part of the Education and Leadership Ministries Commission, has prepared a comprehensive "Equal Access Guide for Meetings, Conferences, Large Assemblies and Worship," edited by Linda Jean H. Larson, the committee's staffperson.

The guide is based on the theological principles that all people are created in the image of God, are called by God, have spiritual gifts, and are invited to participate in God's ministry.

The guide helps meeting planners implement the principles with detailed practical advice ranging from the maximum slope of access ramps to the seating of Sign Language interpreters, adequate space for work dogs, and much more.
