A Place at the Table – How People with Disabilities are Shaping Community

May 19, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

In the left panel is a woman with ginger hair, in the middle panel is a blonde woman, and in the right panel is a man with brown hair and glasses. In the bottom right corner is the Tamarack Institute logo.

Caregiving in society is something that community does best. It is the area in which the “experts” are those who empathize, listen and connect. As we enter a year of COVID-19, the concept of care has been re-evaluated and re-envisioned. How can those living with disabilities be enabled to share their gifts in order to shape their communities? We will discuss the decision-making process and how taking an asset-based approach will help us build a more vibrant society.

Join us as we discuss with Sarah Schulman, author of The Trampoline Effect, and Steven Estey, a Human Rights Officer about how we can reinvent our social safety nets by involving people with disabilities in decision-making processes in their communities.
