The Washington Assistive Technology Act Program joined a community celebration of the 20th anniversary of the American with Disabilities Act at the Woodland Park Zoo. The event was sponsored by the Alliance for People with disabilities and featured speeches by local disability advocates and proclamations by government representatives. It was great to talk with people interested in Assistive Technology and provide them with resources they need. The venue and warm weather punctuated a great event, the only down side was not being setup next to the petting zoo.
We’ll be posting upcoming events to Facebook and Twitter, we look forward to meeting you at our next outing.
