The Paul K. Longmore Institute on Disability at San Francisco State University is trying to connect with the following individuals who were in the San Francisco Bay Area in April 1977. We’re eager to interview them about their experiences at the Section 504 Protests when more than one hundred people with different disabilities occupied the San Francisco federal building for over a month, the longest occupation of a federal building by any group in US history. We are profiling the events in an accessible exhibit “Patient No More! People with Disabilities Securing Civil Rights” that will highlight the Bay Area’s central role in helping pave the way for the Americans with Disabilities Act to launch with its 25th anniversary in 2015. To learn more, visit the exhibit website: http://longmoreinstitute.sfsu.edu/patientnomore If you have any information please contact us by phone: 415-405-3528 or email: email@example.com

Send Your Senators A Message Online: Reauthorize the Rehabilitation Act Now!
Reauthorizing the Rehabilitation Act is NCIL’s top priority. The Rehabilitation Act mandates how Centers for Independent Living (CILs) and Statewide Independent Living Councils (SILCs) operate.
The Rehabilitation Act is contained within the Workforce Investment Act of 2013 (WIA), Senate Bill 1356. WIA has not been reauthorized since 1998, even though Congress requires it to be reauthorized every five years.
Disability and Independent Living advocates have worked tirelessly with legislators to strengthen the language within the Rehabilitation Act. S.1356 contains significant changes to the Independent Living program, including the creation of an Independent Living Administration (ILA), which will be located within the Administration for Community Living.
On July 31, 2013, S. 1356 was passed out of the Senate Health, Education, Labor & Pensions (HELP) Committee. Tell your Senator it is time to move S1356 to the Senate Floor and PASS IT!
S. 1356 is your chance to join the efforts of countless people who created change in the past and continue to ensure that the laws of this land are equal and accessible for all. Please take this opportunity to let your Senators know that they should support WIA and how it would affect you!
Additional information on S. 1356 can be found at www.ncil.org/rehabact.
