DETAILS
An evening of compelling storytelling from seven diverse, honest perspectives on disability, its unique challenges, & finding its surprising power. Storytellers will share a peek into their lives & the process of identifying & unleashing their potential & purpose. Our theme for the night: Finding my superpower through my disability.
They say necessity is the mother of invention. It has been through my disability, & the constraints it would impose on my life, that I've worked to discover new depths in both my own abilities & the human connection in my life.
- Justin Pines, "Finding my Superpower" speaker
We are thrilled to invite you into our evening of personal storytelling, human connection, & ideas with the potential to move, challenge & transform us all.
After our program of individual stories, we will invite the speakers back to the stage for an open forum discussion where audience members can ask questions & all can engage in dialogue.
There will be wine & drinks provided before & after the program. After the event, spend time with the speakers & network with the audience.
Speakers will begin at 6:30pm. Invite your family & friends, it is going to be an unforgettable night!
