Ever Widening Circle 2019

You are invited to join us at our annual fundraising gala, Ever Widening Circle, celebrating WID’s work on critical issues confronting people with disabilities worldwide and honoring leaders in the ever growing number of those committed to justice and inclusion of people with disabilities.

Mark your calendars for Thursday, September 5, 2019, between 5:30 pm–7:30 pm, and join us at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA) for an evening of art, tours, awards, drinks, and hors d’oeuvres.

This year, we will be celebrating the collaborations between a local disability advocacy group, The Blind Posse, and Bay Area art museums to help make art accessible to people with visual disabilities. Building on the initial success with the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA), the Blind Posse has worked with the Asian Art Museum, the de Young, the Palace of the Legion of Honor, and the Contemporary Jewish Museum to help develop a more rewarding visitor experience for the visually impaired.

An internationally recognized public policy center founded in 1983 by leaders of the Independent Living Movement, WID’s program work focuses on critical policy issues that directly affect people’s ability to live full and independent lives. WID initiatives focus on employment & economic empowerment (WID E3), which includes asset-building and financial education; climate change and disability disaster preparedness; and inclusive access to conferences and technology. International projects and research focus on capacity building of Disabled Persons Organizations (DPO), as well as training and mentoring disabled fellows from around the world.

The success and visibility of Ever Widening Circle is the result of the strong collaborative ties between WID and its partners and sponsors.
