Accessibility barriers affect people with disabilities all around the world, no matter their age, race, religion, nationality or economic status.

That was readily apparent from the people tweeting using the #InaccessibilityMeans hashtag. The trending topic began with a tweet from Emily Ladau, Editor in Chief of Rooted in Rights and Cohost of The Accessible Stall Podcast.
