Accessibility Map-a-thon

Located in ARCH, room 108. We hope that you will join us for our second map-a-thon event! There will be free food and a happy hour! 

About AMP: The AMP is a mobile-friendly platform for visualizing access on Penn's campus. It is survey-based and allows users to upload pictures, audio, and text that convey their personal understandings of access. The AMP is something akin to "Waze" for accessibility and is designed to speak to multiple visions of access at the same time (not just ADA).

The AMP has two primary functions:

1) It serves as a reporting tool for the emergence of physical and social barriers to access at Penn.

2) It provides a guide for users who wish to effectively navigate our campus.

We hope that the AMP will unite our campus community and foster an environment of inclusion, diversity, and respect.
