SF Disability Community Cultural Center

Tell us what you want!

Local disability leaders are planning a community cultural center where people with disabilities can get services, build community, learn about disability history, and support disability culture.

We want to hear from disabled people who live or work in San Francisco and ask you take our survey for the planning of San Francisco's new disability community cultural center.

The survey is about 12 minutes long, and can be taken in English, Chinese, Spanish, Russian, Tagalog and Vietnamese:
Please participate by 12/31/2018 at www.surveymonkey.com/r/SFDisabilityCenter.

FOCUS GROUPS

In addition, we're interested in talking more to those who too often don't get to share their input. Please spread the word that we are recruiting disabled people who are LGBTQIA and/or people of color, for one of our upcoming paid focus groups (and for LGBTQIA people of color, we will welcome all identities at either group so please encourage people to choose the group that is most convenient):
