Each year, the Harvard Law School Project on Disability (HPOD) welcomes the community to learn more about its ongoing research, capacity-building, and awareness-raising activities aimed at enabling civil society to undertake informed disability rights advocacy across an array of issue areas. Join the HPOD team once again this year from 4 to 5:30pm US Eastern time in room WCC 1010, on the first floor of Harvard Law School’s Wasserstein Hall, Caspersen Student Center, Clinical Wing complex, located at 1585 Massachusetts Avenue, Cambridge, MA 20138.
We will discuss our planned activities and events for the academic year ahead and ways that you can become involved in HPOD’s exciting work in support of an international treaty on the rights of older persons, calling for disability-inclusive climate action and research, promoting disability inclusion in the global peace and security agenda, reckoning with the legacy of mass institutionalization, participatory research on priority issues for persons with intellectual disabilities, and much more.
Light refreshments will be served. ASL interpreting and CART captioning will be provided.
