Digital Gathering
Zoom accessibility features including closed captioning through Closed Captioning REST API, automatic transcripts, recordings, Keyboard Shortcuts,  and Screen Reader Support are available. AR asks about access needs for being in the digital space and accommodates when able.

Physical Gathering
The Outlier Inn lacks ADA compliance. Gender neutral bathrooms are available throughout the property. AR conducts access check-ins during orientation and each day in small groups. AR facilitates resource exchange and sharing to meet needs in real time. AR aims to center a culture of asking pronouns, respecting boundaries, and resisting power dynamics.
