Our Brief

Dogwood Alliance advances environmental justice and climate action by mobilizing diverse voices to protect southern forests and communities from industrial logging. As a proud, inclusive organization that draws strength from the diversity of its community, Dogwood Alliance sought to make its website more accessible for everyone, including those with disabilities and people who speak a language other than English at home.

Client Testimonial

"As a forest, climate, and justice organization, Dogwood Alliance believes that accessibility is a justice issue. How can we achieve true equity, inclusivity, and intersectionality without accessibility? Using the ReciteMe accessibility button has made our website, our content, and our mission available to a much broader audience. Now people who speak different languages, people who are dyslexic, people who are visually impaired, and many others have fewer barriers to becoming part of the movement. "
