A friend and I are in the process of designing a speaking event with the goal of increasing awareness for the community of individuals with disabilities. At the event, individuals with disabilities will tell their story, or perhaps show us a talent (sing, dance, magic, ext). A large portion of revenue from ticket sales will go towards research into disabilities (not sure which ones yet), and the left over money will go toward planing future events. I have been touched by disabilities, as my girl friend, her mom, uncle, and grandfather all have muscular dystrophy, and I myself have a stutter. Let me know if you have interest in speaking at the event or in attending the event as a member of the audience. This is sure to be a powerful event. Bryant University is located in Smithfield, RI, and Stonehill College is located in North Easton,Ma. Looking forward to your responses!
