Film Screening & Discussion of Patient No More: People with Disabilities Securing Civil Rights
November 3 @ 1:30 pm
The Paul K. Longmore Institute on Disability invites you to discover a remarkable,
overlooked moment in U.S. history when people with disabilities occupied a government
building to demand their rights. Known as the “Section 504 Sit-In,” the protest profoundly
changed the lives of people with and without disabilities, and paved the way for the
Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) in 1990. Please join us in watching the film, Patient
No More, and participating in a follow up discussion with Longmore Institute Associate
Director, Emily Smith Beitkis, PhD. If you need an accommodation to attend this event,
please contact the library 5 days prior to the event: 650-697-7607.
