Accessibility T-shirts! Look like the a11y nerd you are

It’s well known in the accessibility community that the road to an inclusive digital world is through awareness. And what better way to raise awareness than wearing an awesome, head-turning accessibility t-shirt?

Three accessibility t-shirts in a banner image. Each one described and linked below.

Before we begin, you might be wondering how much we get paid to write this post. It’s zero. Zip. Nada. Just hopefully the admiration from other fellow accessibility nerds! So let’s dive in!

Accessibility matters

It’s not easy to find t-shirts raising awareness of hidden impairments like autism. But luckily we found this one! A great reason to go get it is that “50% or more of the proceeds from this design are donated directly to disabled individuals who are fundraising for a mobility aid or other accessibility device.”

Black tshirt with icons for wheelchair, sign language, cognitive impairments and visual inpairment. Text beneath: "Accessibility matters".
