Hey, friends and fans. I’m so pleased to have the opportunity to share with you the full online catalogue of the #GCDDStorytellingProject. As you may remember, I have been a part of a team who has traveled the state of Georgia over the last year and a half, collecting stories about people with developmental disabilities. Here is one manifestation of that journey.
Still to come, our podcast, #HiddenVoices, premiering this fall.
I want to celebrate together with the Georgia Council on Developmental Disabilities as well as my fellow partners, Resurgens Impact Consulting, Lynsey N. Weatherspoon, Haylee Anne, Beate Sass, Moira Bucciarelli, and L’Arche Atlanta.
Here’s what GCDD had to say about it…
|Everyone has a story to tell.|
The Georgia Council on Developmental Disabilities is excited to launch Telling Our Stories, its story collection project. Spanning Georgia’s 56 state senate districts, GCDD teamed up with talented writers and photographers who set out to collect some great stories – allowing this project to become a vehicle of advocacy for Georgians living with disabilities.
The people you will meet are children, young adults, college students, athletes, employees, adults, entrepreneurs, siblings, parents – all with a story to tell.
These are funny, heartwarming, challenging, amazing stories about people with developmental disabilities who are living, working and advocating for their rights – and disability rights in Georgia. All want to be included in social circles, workplaces and communities of their choice. Just like all of us.
We hope you will enjoy these stories and the people who took the time to tell them.
