Berkeley, CA (PRWEB) December 05, 2012
DRA is one of the leading nonprofit disability rights legal centers in the nation. For nearly twenty years its landmark lawsuits have set legal precedents and enforced civil rights for millions of people with disabilities throughout the country.
The new Disability Rights Advocates website features a clean design and navigation, the ability to search cases by Life Area and/or Disability, a pressroom, resources, and the ability make online donations. Most importantly, the new website is compliant with Section 508 web accessibility standards, and is accessible to people with a diverse range of hearing, movement, sight, and cognitive ability. The key accessibility features include a text resizing tool, a high contrast theme, and access keys.
Larry Paradis, Executive Director and Co-Director of Litigation for Disability Rights Advocates, commented: “As a nonprofit legal center serving the needs of people with disabilities, we are pleased with Project6 Design’s talent in web development and design, which culminated in a website that is fully accessible and allows us to present our work and its impact in a professional and engaging manner.”
The website redesign was also built with Drupal, an open-source content management system (CMS). Drupal is one of the most popular content management systems in use on the Internet, and it allows the Disability Rights Advocates team to update and maintain website content quickly and easily.
“Project6 is proud of our work on the Disability Rights Advocates website redesign,” says Esten Sesto, President, Project6. “Our goal was to create an accessible website that is easy to use and maintain, and reflects the level of professionalism of DRA. The new Disability Rights Advocates website achieves this nicely.”
