The UFCD Disability Caucus was created in 2016 and serves to inform the community about issues that affect the disabled community. So far, the caucus has given presentations on the different laws passed regarding disabled people and how we, as a student body and a community, can alter our predispositions about the disabled community and their views. The caucus has also collaborated to bring Nina G, a disability activist and comedian, to perform and speak on campus.
