On Thursday, September 5, 2019, WID Board and staff were joined by many of our supporters at our annual fundraising gala, Ever Widening Circle, held this year at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA).
Each year, Ever Widening Circle highlights art from the disability community, honors several leaders who have shown commitment to justice and inclusion of people with disabilities, and celebrates WID’s work on critical issues confronting people with disabilities
This year, we celebrated the collaborations between a local disability advocacy and social group, The Blind Posse, with the Bay Area Arts Access Collective and Bay Area art museums to help make art accessible to people with visual disabilities. Building on their initial success with the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA), the group 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.
The success and visibility of Ever Widening Circle is the result of the strong collaborative ties between WID and its partners and sponsors. WID thanks individuals and companies who have joined us in our commitment to advancing disability rights and supported our gala event by becoming a sponsor.
We appreciate your support toward our mission to eliminate barriers to full social integration and increase employment and economic security for persons with disabilities worldwide!
