THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED 

In response to concerns about the health impacts of the air quality in Berkeley, and mindful that people with disabilities in our community are disproportionately impacted by the current air conditions, we have decided to cancel the Nov. 14 event sponsored by the Haas Institute for a Fair and Inclusive Society: "#SaytheWord: The Politics of Language and Disability."
