1977 Disability Sit-In: The Power of Imagery Photographer Anthony Tusler
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.
Disability photographer Anthony Tusler will share his experiences photographing Day 1 of the 504 protest as well as his continued efforts to document the disability experience.
