UCSC Celebrates Global Accessibility Awareness Day 2020

From Awareness to Action 

UCSC’s Disability Resource Center and the Accessible Technology Committee (ATC) in partnership with consultant Len Burns invite you to attend this year’s Global Accessibility Awareness Day (GAAD 2020). Global Accessibility Awareness Day takes place each year on the third Thursday in May. 

The goal of this event is to promote practical ways to help individuals with disabilities enjoy full access to campus resources. This year marks the 30th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) signed into law on July 26, 1990, by then-President George Bush. We want to acknowledge the significant impact this landmark legislation has had on equal rights and also take the opportunity to promote some important work happening on our campus. 

Come ready for an informative and interactive program featuring the Student Perspective, Zoom, and DocuSign.

For disability purposes, please email smniel@ucsc.edu before May 15th.
