Cassie Wilson knew it was challenging to access show spaces but took it upon herself to make a change. When she started the database on Half Access, she aimed to create a list of places that met the needs of all types of accessibility, from mobility to less visible disabilities like epilepsy.
Cassie's nonprofit has grown to include an educational blog and ability to tour. She joins this week to talk about the ways people can help promote accessibility and inclusivity, her love of the Portland scene, and more.
