MAG's Commitment to Access and Inclusion
The Maricopa Association of Governments is committed to ensuring everyone has equal access to MAG information and that diverse individuals are able to participate fully in MAG activities. Below are a few of the ways we provide opportunities for input from a diverse blend of voices in the decision-making process.
MAG has established goals to ensure digital accessibility for people with disabilities. We continue to make changes to improve the user experience for everyone and apply the relevant accessibility standards as outlined in our Web Accessibility Statement below. If you have experienced any accessibility barriers while using any part of azmag.gov, please let us know.

Participation in MAG Meetings
With advanced notice, MAG can provide disability accommodations at MAG meetings. Listening devices are available by contacting MAG staff. In addition, with advanced notice (contact [email protected]), MAG can assist you with:
- Large print or Braille materials
- Accessibility needs
- Language interpreters, including sign language, Spanish, or other language
Title VI and Environmental Justice
Title VI requires that no person in the United States of America shall, on the grounds of race, color, or national origin, be excluded from the participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be otherwise subjected to discrimination under any program or activity for which MAG receives federal financial assistance. See our full Title VI notice to the public and learn more about our Title VI and Environmental Justice Program.
Resources to translate materials and interpret for individuals are available but finite. MAG maintains vital materials about the agency in Spanish and will translate into other languages upon request. Spanish-speaking staff is available at policy committee meetings and as needed for other public meetings. Additional materials and interpreters will be made available with advanced notice.
MAG Statement Against Racial Violence
The Maricopa Association of Governments (MAG) has adopted Policy Principles that highlight our commitment to prohibiting discrimination in the planning and delivery of our programs and initiatives. MAG is a forum — for governments, stakeholders, and the public — that works to serve our communities and endeavors to improve the quality of life for all of our residents. MAG condemns the recent and ongoing tragedies that are the result of racially and ethnically fueled violence. We stand in solidarity against all injustices inflicted on Asian Americans, persons of color, and Indigenous populations, as well as any senseless acts of violence and bigotry.
