Community Dialogue on Assistive Technology Needs of People with Disabilities

Tuesday, July 21, 2015
5:00 pm – 6:30 pm

Independent Living Resource Center
825 Howard St.
San Francisco, CA
94103

Are you a person with a disability and/or a maker/hacker/developer interested in assistive technology and accessibility?

Do you have an idea for new technology that could impact your life or the lives of others with disabilities?

The Independent Living Resource Center San Francsico and the Disability Visibility Project invite you for a conversation on innovation in technology that can impact the lives of people with disabilities. In partnership with Google.org, we believe nothing should be created, designed, or built without input from actual users with disabilities.

A representative from Google.org will be onsite to discuss how you can participate in a bootcamp and hackathon to be held by Google.org, the charitable arm of Google as part of their Impact Challenge on improving access for people with disabilities later this summer. This hackathon is modeled on one by Tikkun Olam Makers.

To RSVP, contact erin@ilrcsf.org

If you can’t make it in person, A Google hangouts link will be available.

NOTE: ILRCSF is wheelchair accessible and provides reasonable accommodations upon request. 3 days Advance notice of your accommodation needs is greatly appreciated. In order to be fully accessible to all people with disabilities, ours is a scent-free office. When visiting ILRCSF, please do not wear any scented products, including perfumes, aftershave, hairspray, etc.
