    ACCESS TO FINANCIAL SECURITY

    The 504 Sit-in was a disability rights protest that began on April 5, 1977. Independent Living leaders at the time knew that the ability to benefit from federal programs and higher education was their right as U.S. Citizens, and an avenue to improved quality of life.
