   Sean Forbes Deaf and Loud Event Flyer   Haben Girma "Creating Inclusive Digital Spaces' flyer

  • Sean Forbes FREE concert on Sunday, May 22 (at Chumash Auditorium - Event Flyer)
  • Haben Girma presentation on Thursday, May 26 (at UU220 - Event Flyer)
    • Harvard Law’s first deafblind graduate, Haben Girma, excelled in large part because of the creation of a community that valued inclusion. Haben, who now works at Disability Rights Advocates, encourages the development of inclusive institutions with accessible services. Recognized as a Champion of Change by the White House, Haben moves us towards a world where people with disabilities access the same services, at the same institutions, and at the same time as non-disabled individuals. Technology designed with accessibility in mind truly transforms the lives of people with disabilities. Through this thoughtful presentation, Haben invites everyone to design services from the ground up with universal access in mind. To learn more about Haben, visit habengirma.com
