Special Events - Disability Awareness Day 2022
The City of San Jose is no longer requiring volunteers to provide proof of vaccination/booster shots in order to volunteer at City-sponsored events.

Please bring a filled water bottle, snacks , and wear closed toe shoes. Dress for the weather! The event will be held--rain or shine!
Disability Awareness Day is a celebration of unity, inviting the entire community to participate while promoting awareness and appreciation of people with differing abilities. It also provides educational opportunities for the general public to understand the many barriers individuals with disabilities encounter in our society. You will be tasked with an assignment on the day of the event. Areas of support include but are not limited to food service, parking, and registration.
