Welcome!

Thank you for visiting the official student-created website of the UC Santa Barbara Associated Students’ Commission on Disability Equality (CODE). Double-click the “About Us” tab above (or follow the embedded link) to navigate this website. The flyer below shares some more information about who we are.

Flyer with red, yellow, and blue accents in the background. “UCSB Associated Students” is in small yellow text, over the words “Commission on Disability Equality” in red text.
The first header in blue text reads, “Who are we?” Underneath this, the first line of text reads, 
“We are a student-run A.S. group dedicated to disability justice.”
The words “disability justice” are in bold and underlined.
In smaller text are the words: “We are committed to establishing a platform for self-advocacy and community-building efforts,” and in bold, continues, “run by and for students in the disability community.”
The next paragraph reads, “As we work to make UCSB a more accessible and inclusive campus for everyone, our Commission invites collaboration with other marginalized communities. Many of us experience ableism at the intersection of other interlocking oppressions. It is critical to recognize that in our efforts empower fellow students in the disability community.”
In yellow text, the second header reads, “Students: connect with us on Discord or Instagram!” Next to an image of the Discord logo is the link, https://tinyurl.com/CODE-Virtual-Space, and next to an image of the Instagram logo is the Instagram handle, @ucsb.code
