AccesSOS

Gabriella Wong is CEO and Founder 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; accesSOS’s 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, and Stand Together Ventures.

She received her Masters in Public Health from Columbia University. She is a 2021 UC Berkeley CTSP Fellow, a 2021 Camelback Fellow, and 2022 Roddenberry Fellow. 

She is Co-Chair of NENA: the 911 Association’s (National Emergency Number Association) Communication Modalities Group, and part of working groups that focus on accessibility and emergency notification for persons with disabilities. Her work has been spotlighted in Forbes, the MIT Social Impact Blog, Founded by Women, and ABC 7 News.
