Patient No More Traveling Exhibit

About the Exhibit

The Paul K. Longmore Institute on Disability invites you to discover a remarkable, overlooked moment in U.S. history when people with disabilities occupied a government building to demand their rights. Known as the “Section 504 Sit-In,” the protest profoundly changed the lives of people with and without disabilities, and paved the way for the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) in 1990. The traveling exhibit will be hosted at the San Mateo County Office of Education from October 15-30.

For more information about the exhibit, please refer to the Patient No More website, hosted by San Francisco State University.
