The American Anthropological Association is committed to ensuring it is accessible and goes beyond the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requirements.

In our dedication to moving beyond the ADA, we have developed this accessibility & accommodations web section in collaboration with various accessibility community members. These pages outline support available from AAA and the expectations of event attendees that will help us cultivate an accessible culture within the Association. We strive to nourish an environment where Disabled, Deaf, Blind, Autistic, Neurodivergent, Mentally Ill, Chronically Ill, Aging, and other disability-adjacent community members can comfortably and meaningfully attend AAA events.

As we cultivate a more accessible anthropology discipline, join us on Twitter using #AccessibleAnthro for critical conversations and to find important resources and news articles about accessibility.
