American culture thrives on a certain type of attitude: “You can do it if you try!” Yet, these last twelve months of the pandemic have upended these expectations and made us aware of our limitations and inabilities. Could we learn from those in our midst who live with more consciousness of their own disabilities?
In this webinar you will hear insights from four panelists from across the globe who will share stories and reflections on the intersection between building community and living with disability.
