WHEEL CHAIR ACCESSIBLE:The park is wheelchair accessible. With sidewalks from the parking lot that lead to grassy, leveled area where we will be located
SCENT-FREE: Seward Park is a public park, so we cannot guarantee a fragrance-free space, we are asking participants who will be present to be scent-free and avoid wearing perfumes and other fragrances to reduce the risk of exposure to our community members with chemical sensitivities. More information about why and how to be scent-free is available at http://www.peggymunson.com/mcs/fragrancefree.html and http://eastbaymeditation.org/accessibility/PDF/MCS-ACCESSIBILITY-BASICS.pdf
Bathrooms are located south of the location we will be at Seward Park . Bathrooms are gendered and have scented soaps, one wheelchair accessible bathroom with bar. We are asking participants to please use the fragrance-free soaps API Chaya will provide in the restrooms.
We’d like to work with you to make this and future events as accessible as possible. Please let us know your access needs by emailing Lourdez@apichaya.org, and we’ll work with you to make sure our events can fit your needs.
Know Your Rights – Fair Work Center pamphlets will be available
