The Forward Movement is an initiative of Jonathan Silver and Dylan Itzikowitz.
Jonathan is a design activist interested in how simple changes to iconography can have powerful impacts. He's also deeply committed to universal human equity.
Dylan's passion for accessibility started when he was struck by a car in July 2016, temporarily requiring him to rely on a wheelchair for mobility. Dylan always had an interest in influencing social policy, and read about the Accessible Icon Project during his time in hospital. Dylan wanted to bring the Icon to Canada, as a means of educating his society on the importance of bringing down physical and social barriers to be inclusive for everyone.
Together, with their growing list of partners and passionate volunteers, they are using the change to ignite healthy dialogue about disability and accessibility issues; the catalyst for a much needed culture shift.
