TPR Events & Initiatives

AccessAbility Fest 2012 was a fun- and information-filled event  on Sunday, October 28. More than 3,000 people (and zombies!) filled HemisFair Park. Even the Sith Shadow Council of Texas was on-hand, making children and adults smile and reach for their light sabers.

Victor J. Settles provided the following video of Darth Vader's AccessAbility Fest experiences:
