You're Invited! The Paul K. Longmore Institute on Disability at SFSU Patient No More Exhibit Opens Sunday in Berkeley July 23rd, 2015

Come Celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act 
at the Ed Roberts Campus on Sunday, July 26th, 2015.

The Paul K. Longmore Institute on Disability at San Francisco State University is pleased to invite you to the launch of our exhibit, Patient No More: People with disabilities securing civil rights. After nearly three years of work, we cannot wait to share this great Bay Area story with you. The celebration will be particularly exciting as it will reunite many of the protesters from the 1977 Section 504 Occupation (the focus of our exhibit). You won't want to miss this historic opportunity coinciding with the 25th anniversary of the signing of the Americans with Disabilities Act.

To add to the celebration, please consider coming in your best 1970s attire: go deep into that back closet or neighborhood thrift to find those brightly colored bell bottoms and wide collars…you'll blend right in with the people pictured in our exhibit!

When: Sunday, July 26, 2015, 2:00 - 4:30 with a brief program starting at 2pm.
Where: The Ed Roberts Campus above Ashby BART, 3075 Adeline
Details: Free and open to the public. Event program will include ASL and captioning. Please refrain from wearing scented products.

LEARN how the course of disability history and a nation were changed over 26 days in 1977. 
EXPLORE a landmark moment in civil rights.
DISCOVER untold stories from protesters in the longest occupation of a federal building in US history. 
REFLECT on the grassroots origins of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990. 
RECORD your own protest slogan. 

Can't make it to the opening? Don't worry! The exhibit will remain at the Ed Roberts Campus until December 18, 2015 and a traveling exhibit will also bring this story to the greater Bay Area, August - December 2015. For additional upcoming events and information, visit:
