Opening Doors and Removing Barriers
Access and Opportunities is about organizing state government to identify, understand, and act upon the structural impediments, which inhibit the equitable inclusion of various individuals within the fabric of the state's social and economic mainstream. It is about bringing a higher degree of transparency of effort and accountability forward. In short, Access and Opportunities is about opening doors and removing barriers.
