Access Awards 

The 2024 Access Awards will be held on Friday, July 26th, from 6-9 pm at the Holiday Inn hotel located at 3700 Central Avenue. This year's theme is "Crossroad of Change." There will be live entertainment, a live auction, and plenty of good fun and fellowship. 



Disability Connection Midsouth, Memphis's Center for Independent Living continues our work of almost 40 years of advocating, educating, and uniting communities. Access will always be a cornerstone of what we do, ensuring that people with disabilities can work, live, and play alongside neighbors without disabilities. However, eliminating barriers to access cannot be done by one individual or organization alone, but instead it takes the hard work of many to break down barriers. Disability Connection Midsouth celebrates the accomplishments of advocates from across our community during our annual Access Awards Banquet. This year’s theme is “Crossroads of Change.” A new crossroad is coming for our organization and hopefully for the entire disability community of Memphis. Will you be part of the change?
