GOLDEN GATE XPRESS -- The Paul K. Longmore Institute on Disability celebrated its second year hosting the volunteer-based festival at the Contemporary Jewish Museum in downtown San Francisco last Sunday. The Institute is SF State’s in-house organization located on the first floor of the Humanities building. Assistant Director Emily Beitiks worked with Director Catherine Kudlik and Executive Director Bryan Bashin of Lighthouse, an organization for the blind and visually impaired, to bring Superfest to San Francisco. “We believe it’s our role to be out there to be the part of the cultural movement on disability awareness,” Bashin said. “And the Bay Area is the crucible of disability rights.”
