Mayor’s Disability Council

The Mayor's Disability Council (MDC), staffed by the Mayor's Office on Disability, was re-organized by the Mayor in October, 1998, to provide a better vehicle for public input.

It’s Mission is to:

  • Advise the Mayor of San Francisco on disability issues
  • Work with the Mayor's Office on Disability to ensure ADA Compliance
  • Provide a public forum to discuss disability issues.

Visit the MDC website at http://www.sfgov.org/site/sfmdc_index.asp to learn more about the current Mayor's Disability Council-members or to see how to view the MDC Meeting through SFGTV. These meetings set the standard for public accessibility with a fully accessible site, powered door openers, accessible seating and speaker podiums, an infra-red assistive listening system, a telephone bridge for public comment from home, televised open captioning, and American Sign Language interpreters.

The MDC meets every third Friday of the month at City Hall, Room 400 from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. and also has monthly Disability Disaster Committee Meetings and Physical Access Committee Meetings. For more information, contact the Mayor’s Office on Disability at 401 Van Ness Avenue, Room 300 San Francisco, CA 94102.
