Ceara, Brazil: Third Forum on Disability and Accessibility

There is no better post for Independence day than to announce that the revolutionary spirit of full citizenship for all continues and overflows the geographic confines and linguistic constraints of the USA.


On July 30, 2012 I will be speaking in Fortaleza, Brazil at their Third Forum on Disability and Accessibility. My topics will revolve around legacies of inclusion and accessibility from major sporting events like the Olympics, World Cup, and Commonwealth Games.
