San Francisco is home to 150,000 consumers with disabilities. It’s also home to a thriving small business community.
If you’re a business owner, ILRCSF can provide you with information and resources about your responsibilities regarding accessibility to all consumers. We can also tell you how becoming more disability-friendly is good for business.
If you’re a consumer with a disability, ILRCSF can provide you with information about your rights to accessibility in the marketplace. We can also provide you with some tools to advocate for a more disability-friendly business community.
If you’re a business owner
California has a new law (SB 1608) that every business owner needs to know about. It both improves protection for business owners against unwarranted lawsuits, and protects the rights of consumers. ILRCSF has developed an easy-to-follow summary of SB 1608, the new law which both protects business owners from unwarranted lawsuits, and supports the interests of consumers with disabilities.
ILRCSF is working closely with the small business community to develop and disseminate resources that make 1608 easy to understand.
We also work together to inform business owners that accessibility is good for business.
