Challenged by the pandemic and its future aftermath, social work has been forced to relocate its relational social change mission and action to a new address, replacing a physical location with a URL. The need for digital accessibility thus has rapidly appeared and is now a major squeaky wheel in the profession. In order to make this move while upholding the professional mission of full inclusion, this chapter proposes a model of progressive digital accessibility. A synthetic framework marrying disjuncture theory and pragmatist ethics provides a rich foundation from which forensic analysis can expose and capitalize on “what is wrong,” disrupt business as usual, and innovate to achieve accessibility that is fluid, just, and worthy of social work leadership.
