News reports announced that the January 20, 2017 Women's March assembled the largest number of disabled protesters ever with groups such as "Crippling the Women's March," pushing organizers to plan for access. Yet, when people reflect on the successful 504 occupation of San Francisco's Federal Building for nearly a month 40 years ago, many remark that it could never happen today. This panel will bring together disabled organizers to consider the legacy of the 504 protests and the current state of disability activism.

Events for adults and children dealing with disabilities, their families, friends and allies.
