Ability’s Squash the Stigma Week

Next week, November 12-16, is Squash the Stigma Week! Every fall, the Ability Club plans events to start a discussion about physical and mental disabilities. This year, the focus will be physical impairments and issues with the accessibility of buildings on campus. Every day, we will be doing a photo campaign in the DUC. Stop by our table to tell us your opinion on how we can make Wash U more accessible and increase diversity in the student body!

At 6pm on Thursday, November 15, we will be watching and discussing The Ataxian in Siegle 306. This movie follows a cyclist with a fatal neuro-muscular disorder as he attempts to complete the most grueling bicycle race in the world, The Race Across America. Please email abilitywashu@gmail.com if you are interested in coming to the movie screening or if you have any other questions!
