About this event

Oscar Pistorius proved it in the Olympics, and millions around the world prove it every day—people with disabilities and special needs are more alike their able-bodied peers than different, and deserve to be seen, heard, welcomed and accepted in every classroom, boardroom, and community at large. Meet two outstanding self-advocates from the Upstate, challenge your own preconceived notions about what is and isn’t possible, and discover resources and ways to support the local disabled community.
