Last year, Diamond launched the GAAD Pledge, a commitment made by organizations and developers to make accessibility a core value of their digital products. The GAAD Pledge is open to all organizations and can be taken throughout the year as a long-term commitment to accessibility.
Facebook Takes the GAAD Pledge
In celebration of Global Accessibility Awareness Day 2020, Facebook is pleased to be the first company to take the pledge, committing to making the React Native framework fully accessible. Facebook built React Native and made it open source so it could be used and further developed by anyone.
We hope this pledge makes it easier for developers using React Native to create fully accessible mobile apps and inspires other organizations to make similar commitments to a more accessible future.Mike Shebanek
