Join Panoramic Interests in the parking lot of 2539 Telegraph Avenue (outdoors), to celebrate the original home of the Center for Independent Living (CIL). Learn how this history will be honored as part of a new building at this site.
CIL was the first center run by people with disabilities to provide support and advocacy for independent living in the community. Since CIL was founded in 1972, Berkeley and the Bay Area have been at the forefront of disability advocacy in the United States.
Light refreshments will be served.
Note: There will be a second event held at a later date. It will allow for public remembrance, where attendees will be invited to share their historical knowledge, stories, and memorabilia related to CIL.
