This Disability Social & Intergenerational Event is meant to connect communities that are often separated by disability and age by fostering peer support. The event will provide the opportunity to share lived experiences on a variety of disability-themed topics including Identity & Culture, Relationships, Fitness and Income.

The event is open to anyone that identifies as having a disability, invisible or visible. The venue is wheelchair accessible and ASL interpretation will be available. It will be in a scent-free environment as well. Should there be further access needs you may require, please let us know.

Our keynote speaker for the event is David Roche, an inspirational humorist, motivational speaker and performer who has transformed the challenges and gifts of living with a facial difference into a compelling message that uplifts and delights audiences around the world.
