Reading Rights Coalition Advocacy Update

As technology advances and more books move from hard-copy print to electronic formats, people with print disabilities deserve the opportunity to enjoy access to books on an equal basis with those who can read print.

People with print disabilities cannot effectively read print because of a visual, physical, perceptual, developmental, cognitive, or learning disability.

No Need for Greed
We Want to Read!

We represent 15 million 30 million Americans who cannot read print because of blindness, dyslexia, spinal cord injury, and other print disabilities.  We include school children, the elderly, professionals, college students, returning veterans, and your neighbors, family members and friends.  We want to buy books.  We have fought very hard for many years to have equal access to technology and information.

Right to Read OVERDUEPlease support us by joining our informational protests and Sign the Petition: We Want to Read.
