Sapolin Accessibility Awards

Sapolin Accessibility Awards

Every year on or around the anniversary of the signing of the Americans with Disabilities Act, the New York City Mayor’s Office for People with Disabilities and the Mayor host the Sapolin Accessibility Awards, named in honor of the late MOPD Commissioner Matthew Sapolin.

These awards are presented to organizations that are actively working toward inclusion and wellness for people with disabilities in the areas of public accommodation, public service, communication and technology, and employment. In addition, every year we award one person with the Frieda Zames Advocacy Award for outstanding work within the disability community.
