Stories and Tellers

Janice Bartley shares a story he began crafting at a workshop in partnership with the AHRC NYC.

“It’s rare, unfortunately, to be in a space where it truly feels like people with disabilities are on a level playing field. But in this community, for this weekend, no one was making accommodations. Everyone was being treated as a valued part of the community. ”
— Matt Guidry, Community Partner —
