Join the University Committee on Disability Access and Inclusion (CDAI) for an evening with Kacie Lucchini Butcher, Director of the Public History Project, to reckon with UW-Madison’s history of eugenics.
Charles Van Hise was the president of UW–Madison from 1903 to 1918 and known for being a co-creator of the Wisconsin Idea. However, many are unaware he was a strong supporter of eugenics – selective breeding, often by forced sterilization to remove people of color, those with disabilities, and those who have been incarcerated or detained. Eugenics policy is considered racist, ableist, and associated with genocide.
Please email email@example.com with any questions or to request an accommodation for the event. CART services will be provided. Facilities are wheelchair accessible.

All are cordially invited to a special reception on Friday, November 4, 12-1PM at the Sifting & Reckoning Exhibit at the Chazen Museum of Art with Kacie Lucchini Butcher and CDAI.
