An evening of compelling storytelling from seven diverse, honest perspectives on disability, its unique challenges, and finding its surprising power. Storytellers will share a peek into their lives and the process of identifying and unleashing their potential and 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, and the constraints it would impose on my life, that I’ve worked to discover new depths in both my own abilities and 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, and ideas with the potential to move, challenge and 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 and all can engage in dialogue.
There will be wine and drinks provided before and after the program. After the event, spend time with the speakers and network with the audience.
Speakers will begin at 6:30pm. Invite your family and friends, it is going to be an unforgettable night!
