April 5-28 marks the 45th anniversary of the San Francisco 1977 Disability
Rights Protest, a sit-in that demanded the enactment of Section 504 of the
Rehabilitation Act of 1973. This was a landmark piece of legislation for

historical action, we look to our present Yale environment to ask important
questions about how the campus supports and falls short for the disability
