Accessibility - additional informationOur current physical accessibility information: There are 8 steep steps to enter the Mt Auburn St door which is 36 inches wide The wheelchair access ramp is at the DeWolfe St door, which is 32 inches wide (with the door open); as of 10/4/17 the ramp is complete, but the door is not usable unassisted. The threshold from the Mandela room into the kitchen is not usable unassisted at this time, we plan to address this at the same time as other door repairs and have it completed by the end of October 2017. There is one gender neutral bathroom on the first floor, which is not accessible. The internal hallways leading to it are between 28-30 inches wide. The bathroom door is 29 inches wide, the toilet is about 6 feet from the door. Daedalus Restaurant, our neighbor, has graciously offered wheelchair users to use their accessible bathroom while our bathroom is being sorted out. To access it, exit the wheelchair ramp and turn left onto Bow St. The immediate next building's back door is a marked accessible entrance, the accessible bathroom is on the right side. The Mandela, Chavez, and Parks rooms are connected by wide sets of double doors. The internal hallways vary between 27-30 inches wide, the library door is 30 inches wide. There is a step between the Mandela room and the kitchen, we are adjusting the thresholds on a timeline to be set by our contractors. Once the ramp, door, and lock system are complete, we will update event organizers and organizational policies to ensure an accessible route and assistive devices are available, check back here for more information more information at http://democracycenter.org/accessibility
