Saying Goodbye: In Memorium
2019 saw the passing of two superstars in the accessibility field. At the beginning of the year, we lost Benetech’s Robin Seaman, who passed suddenly on January 7th, 2019, leaving the DIAGRAM community reeling. Jim Thatcher, a disability rights lawyer and pioneer of digital accessibility passed away on December 7th, 2019. His death leaves a huge hole in the hearts of his friends and community. While both Robin and Jim will be missed their legacies will live on. You can read more about Robin in Benetech’s tribute and more about Jim on the tribute published by the law office of Lainey Feingold.
