Event Recap: The Launch of Patient No More at the Main Library! (Includes Video & Pictures)


We are so happy with the launch of  our exhibit, "Patient No More: People with Disabilities Securing Civil Rights", last Saturday, June 10th at the San Francisco Main Public Library. The kick-off marked an incredible celebration of and homage to the Section 504 sit-in disability activists, who occupied just across the street 40 years ago. Thank you so much to everyone that attended!
