This year, sessions include:

Access Aware: Making Your CTC Accessible to People with Disabilities

Incorporating Youth Multimedia for Social Change in Your Community Technology Program

Freedom Machines, a documentary that will be airing this fall on PBS and is being shown as a pre-conference event Thursday evening, explores the remarkable power that technology has to transform the lives of people with disabilities. The Alliance for Technology Access (ATA) has been very involved in the development of this film, with an award-winning crew and Oscar-nominated producer. Shot in nine locations around the U.S--including several ATA centers--with characters ranging from 7 to 92 years of age, Freedom Machines is not only a revelation but also a call to action. The film's web site provides useful information to supplement the documentary both in educating people about disabilities and how technology and civil rights laws can bring us closer to a world that is more inclusive for everyone.
