Join us for a presentation by HolLynn, a disability rights activist and author of the book Becoming Real in 24 Days, on the story of the longest sit-in at a federal building in history, in which activists with disabilities fought for the regulations which made section 504 a reality. Thanks to the work of these early pioneers in the disability rights movement, people with disabilities, their friends and family can access federal programs without discrimination.
