The Paul K. Longmore Institute on Disability at San Francisco State University is trying to connect with the following individuals who were in the San Francisco Bay Area in April 1977. We’re eager to interview them about their experiences at the Section 504 Protests when more than one hundred people with different disabilities occupied the San Francisco federal building for over a month, the longest occupation of a federal building by any group in US history. We are profiling the events in an accessible exhibit “Patient No More! People with Disabilities Securing Civil Rights” that will highlight the Bay Area’s central role in helping pave the way for the Americans with Disabilities Act to launch with its 25th anniversary in 2015. To learn more, visit the exhibit website: http://longmoreinstitute.sfsu.edu/patientnomore If you have any information please contact us by phone: 415-405-3528 or email: beitiks@sfsu.edu
