UK Disability History Month 2020 is happening from Wednesday 18th November until Friday 18th December 2020. This year the theme is Access: How far have we come? How far have we to go?
UK Disability History Month 2020 poster description. A yellow poster with greyscale images of wheelchairs through the ages using a zebra crossing with tactile paving and an audible crossing control, led by a lady walking with a white cane. The text reads “UKDHM2020 Access: How far have we come? How far have we to go?” Both questions are in speech bubbles from the people on the crossing. Graffiti on the road reads “I.T. for all”.
The poster continues, “UK Disability History Month 2020 18th November (with an online launch) to 18th December”. “We are developing and sharing a wide range of resources to:
- Understand the importance of the struggles of Disabled People for Access;
- Understand the Human Rights Principle of Access for Disabled People;
- Apply Universal Design to environmental, communication, educational, occupational, organisational issues to minimise barriers to Disabled People and maximise our participation.
