The formation of the Consortium reflects similar efforts across Pennsylvania and the nation to use history as a tool for ongoing disability rights advocacy. The Consortium will engage in projects such as exhibits, forums that promote community dialogue, and curricula for schools.
The Consortium is open to all individuals and organizations with an interest in raising awareness of disability rights history and ensuring that present actions do not repeat errors of the past. You are participate in the Consortium’s activities.
One of the organization's initial projects is creating a comprehensive inventory of historic collections, papers, artifacts and oral histories that exist in Western Pennsylvania and establishing an online, searchable resource for educators, museum professionals, researchers and the public. Click here to complete a short survey about histroical materials that could possibly support the organization's mission.
It is the hope of the Consortium that gathering this information will further enrich the story of disability rights advocacy in Western Pennsylvania. Providing information on the survey does not in any way obligate you or your organization to share any historic materials.
If you have any questions about the Consortium or the survey (including alternate format), please contact John L. Tague, Project Director, at 412-204-7199 or email@example.com.
Please share this survey with others who may be interested in participating.
