Bio

Gabriella Wong is the founder and CEO of AccesSOS, a tech nonprofit fighting to make emergency help accessible to everyone. For any emergency, 911 is the go to phone call for all of us, except for the 37 million Americans who can't hear or speak out loud. Our free mobile web app instantly translates text to a 911 phone call with the relevant information, in real time, at scale, in multiple languages. Some of AccesSOS's contributing partners include Fast Forward, BlackRock, Google.org, PagerDuty.org and Github. She received her Masters in Public Health from Columbia University. She has managed projects advocating for equal access to education, technology, and healthcare for people with disabilities. She is Co-Chair of the National Emergency Number Association's Communication Modalities Committee and fluent in American Sign Language.
