Harvard Disability Resources hosted its first “Disability as Diversity” celebration on Wednesday in honor of National Disability Employment Awareness Month.
Organized by Kate Higgins, associate director of University Disability Resources, the event aimed to recognize Harvard affiliates with disabilities. The celebration, which took place in the Science Center Plaza, featured speeches, booths, and a musical performance.

And in a couple of weeks, we vote in the midterm elections, which may seem a non sequitur, but could not be more closely related, as this election is critical if we wish to be better prepared for the next impending disaster — whether another hurricane in Florida, a fire in California or a heatwave in Washington State. Elections matter, and this one is crucial.
