encuentro 5's ACCe5S! project is launching this Spring. We are raising funds

community space. We’re also adding a ramp in the entryway for use during

Achieving a long-standing objective and working with community input--and in
time for our 5th year anniversary--we will be expanding our capacity to meet
the needs of our sisters and brothers who are otherwise excluded. To make
this happen, we need architects, contractors, plumbers, and community

in the process, to share their needs and ideas, and to give feedback along
the way.

As we look forward to a more accessible e5, please contact Alisa at *
alisa at encuentro5.org*  if you are able to help out with The  ACCe5S!
Project, as well as if you have any questions, suggestions, concerns, or

*Please visit access.encuentro5.org for more information.*
