Want to help address an important social inequity while staying at home? Check out Project Sidewalk! Project Sidewalk, from the Makeability Lab at the University of Washington, aims to expand accessibility for people with physical disabilities by transforming the way accessibility information is collected and visualized for every sidewalk.
Contributing is easy, online, and limitless. Volunteers can contribute by labeling sidewalks through the online portal: projectsidewalk.io. For your hours to be counted, you must sign up and remain signed in while labeling. Once signed in, click “Start Exploring” to begin! You’ll be taken to the tutorial first, and then you’ll get going with labeling. If you’re not sure how to label something, you can always check out the “How to Label” guide. Your hours will be verified by Mikey Saugstad (email@example.com).
*After your first hour of volunteering, email Mikey both your name and your username on the Project Sidewalk website.
