Employment Is Empowering: Disability + Employment Forum

The event honors the memory of Bill Sackter--the original proprietor of Wild Bill’s Coffee Shop and perhaps Iowa City’s most beloved historical figure with disability--and takes place within a week of Bill Sackter Day, the annual observation of his birthday (April 13).social
