Persons-With-Disabilities 5


The purpose of the Persons with Disabilities Ministry is to assist Allen Temple Baptist Church to be ADA friendly. We want to ensure that our ATBC is physically and programmatically accessible to any and all persons with different abilities. We welcome all who desire to fully worship and fellowship without boundaries. Ministry members have inspected the doorways, restrooms, sanctuary, pulpit, and more and made suggestions on changes or modifications. A future project is to review and provide suggestions for making the church's Emergency Preparedness and Evacuation Plan more user friendly and inclusive of persons with disabilities. We welcome all who have an open mind, a willingness to think outside of the box, and a sensitivity to the needs of others.

City of Oakland ADA Survey Announcement:
The City of Oakland seeks your feedback as we renew our commitment to equity and inclusion in all City programs, activities and services. We need to hear from individuals with disabilities, their family and friends, and disability service providers and advocates on steps that could be taken to make sure individuals with disabilities enjoy full and equal access to civic life.

Please take and help disseminate this brief, anonymous online survey found here.

The survey will soon be available in Spanish and Chinese.

Please share this email with your family, friends and others in your networks. Feedback will help make Oakland a great city for everyone to live, work and play.

If you have any questions about the ADA Self-Evaluation Update, or need the survey in an alternative format, please contact Sherri Rita, ADA Programmatic Access
