Invites You to Join
Our 34th Anniversary Celebration
Tuesday, September 17, 2013, 5:30–8:00PM
Ed Roberts Campus, 3075 Adeline Street
TECHeQUITY 2013: Recalculating the Route to Equality
Disability and technology both make us recalculate how we live our lives, and we know there's an intersection where they meet. But technology is constantly evolving, and disability is infinitely variable. Join us for a thoughtful discussion about emerging technology, its benefits for people with all types of disabilities, and what is driving innovation that increases accessibility.

In honor of NAD's unyielding commitment to making technology available to all, as demonstrated in their perseverance in Netflix case that ensures the company will caption streaming video and that has set an important legal precedent regarding the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)
