Notice: amp_is_available was called incorrectly. `amp_is_available()` (or `amp_is_request()`, formerly `is_amp_endpoint()`) was called too early and so it will not work properly. WordPress is currently doing the `pre_get_posts` hook. Calling this function before the `wp` action means it will not have access to `WP_Query` and the queried object to determine if it is an AMP response, thus neither the `amp_skip_post()` filter nor the AMP enabled toggle will be considered. It appears the theme with slug `publisher` is responsible; please contact the author. Please see Debugging in WordPress for more information.

Deborah Kaplan, deputy director of programmatic access at the San Francisco Mayor’s Office on Disability, is a longtime disability advocate whose current role includes citywide policy, guidance and training on accessibility best practices. Since a life-changing spinal-cord injury in her early 20s that left her with significant mobility disabilities, she has focused on making technology more accessible to all, a concept known as universal design.

“It’s a combination of having the right technology and the right people in place to make sure that technology is accessible to all who need it,” she says.
