A Place at the Table – How People with Disabilities are Shaping Community
May 19, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
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.
