2017 Banner Campaign

In 2017, DAY (then “DiversAbility at Yale”) launched its first disability awareness banner campaign. Approximately 30 members of the Yale community – staff, students, and faculty – were featured on larger-than-life-sized banners that included a quotation and a disability fact. The banners were displayed in various campus locations, including Yale Health, Sterling Memorial Library, Poorvu Center for Teaching and Learning, Sterling Hall of Medicine, and many more. Additionally, 8 1/2”x11” flyers of the banners were produced to be displayed on walls and bulletin boards throughout campus, to further the reach of this awareness campaign. The physical 2017 banners and flyers have been retired, but the images remain here to record the history of the banner campaign and its original participants.
