I took some photos at the Abilities Awareness Day event, Wed., Oct. 21, 2009 at the Daytona State College main campus. The event educated college students about deafness, blindness, and people confined to wheelchairs. I just passed through for a few minutes so I don’t have many photos.
Set-up before the event.
Florida Telecommunications Relay table, for the blind.
Free bread sticks! 🙂

A whole bunch of people at 12:30 PM.

Donald helping with the free water. 🙂
This was some event with people talking about their life… there was a mike and speaker system to get attention.
I wasn’t involved in this event but I like anything that brings people together. Supporting the deaf, blind, and people in wheelchairs with braille, audio, subtitles, sign language translators, and wheelchair accessibility is a noble goal.
Press info: you can use these photos for newspapers or reporting (anything editorial). Credit me: “Photography by Richard X. Thripp.” No one signed release forms so you can’t use these photos commercially.
