Event description: 

April 5-28 marks the 45th anniversary of the San Francisco 1977 Disability
Rights Protest, a sit-in that demanded the enactment of Section 504 of the
Rehabilitation Act of 1973. This was a landmark piece of legislation for
people with disabilities in the United States and set the groundwork for the
Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990. As we reflect on this incredible
historical action, we look to our present Yale environment to ask important
questions about how the campus supports and falls short for the disability
• Empower the voices of people with disabilities at Yale
• Learn what is already happening on campus and how to further integrate
accessibility into the work we do
• Imagine possibilities for an accessible campus that go beyond the legal minimum
