Announcing the publication of a new quarterly digital magazine aimed at empowering people with disabilities.

Online PR News – 05-October-2020 – Vancouver, BC – Mélange Magazine Publications has launched a new quarterly digital magazine, Mélange Accessibility for All. This magazine encourages inclusion and accessibility for all, while providing a platform for the empowerment of people with disabilities. It is available to be read on the Company's website, http://www.readmelange.com or directly via this link: bit.ly/MelangeAccessibilityforAllOct20. The magazine can also be accessed on the Joomag Newsstand.

Embracing the concept of a world where everyone deserves the same access to opportunities and resources regardless of their ability or disability, the magazine’s focus is international, aiming to tell the stories of people with disabilities from all around the world. In each issue, content from global sources that appeals to an audience consisting of people with disabilities, family members, educators, advocates, health professionals, the travel and tourism industry, medical equipment providers, adapted technology trailblazers, and others from related organizations will be presented in an attempt to educate, motivate and at times, entertain.

“Mélange recognizes that people with disabilities are often the targets of negative stereotypes and attitudes,” said Debbie Austin, Managing Director of Mélange Magazine Publications. “The magazine’s platform is being used to dispel some of the myths surrounding people with disabilities while advocating for an inclusive society that is respectful of their rights and dignity. Through this process, we intend to raise awareness of the issues that people with disabilities face, identify solutions, and ultimately contribute to societal acceptance and integration.”

Fred J. Maahs, Jr., Editor of Mélange Accessibility for All magazine said, “People with disabilities continue to be the world’s most underserved and underrepresented demographic despite the fact that they represent about 18% of the global population. This magazine will include stories about people with disabilities, their employers, the places they travel to, the organizations that support them, and innovative products and technology that help them live more independently - from around the globe. I am honored to be a part of this unique and informative digital magazine and I hope our readers will enjoy reading it.”

Maahs, an internationally-renowned disability advocate and keynote speaker, is a former Comcast NBCUniversal Executive who founded his own consulting firm in 2019, FJM Solutions, which specializes in disability services, accessible travel, and motivational speaking.
