A Beginner's first PR with Accessibility

I'm organizing a project to help beginners make accessibility focused changes to websites during Hacktoberfest and beyond. These projects can be as simple as possible (yes, that calculator app) and we're willing to guide them through the whole process.

Join Me.. How to Participate

1. Help me find issues and sites to be worked on

Join me surf GitHub and the net for projects that need changes. If you have a website/project that is open source, I'd be willing to run an accessibility audit on it. Note that complex issues are also welcome.

2. Contribute

From October 1, I'd be updating here, on Twitter and a Slack Workspace I created for this purpose (Link below) with the issues found. Feel free to jump in and you also get to meet others.

3. Teach/Share resources

To make this as beginner friendly as possible, there will be teachings to guide you through using Git/GitHub and basic accessibility changes most websites ignore. If you also have an article or website that is accessibility focused, I'd love to have them.

Hi! This sounds great! I'd love to help with this. I'm actually looking for projects to contribute to for Hacktoberfest, so this would work so well. This is an important angle to cover for open source!
