Doors at 6:30 p.m.

Who tells your story? How are you portrayed? Too often disabled people are excluded from these conversations and their stories are told by non-disabled writers, reporters and actors. Rooted in Rights is unique in the media landscape, responding to a critical need for disabled people to be at the forefront of journalism and creative media, telling their own authentic stories. This team of disabled ­filmmakers, storytellers and activists are taking control of their own narratives. Join us for an interactive discussion on creative media and disability rights with Rooted in Rights staff, storytellers, and a selection of short videos created by Storytellers across the country.

Doors at 6:30 p.m.

How many of us raised in isolation from other disabled people wish we could have built connections with the disability community earlier in our lives? Our panel of disabled parents will share insights into how we can create ties between disabled and non-disabled parents, discuss identity, and create a greater positive community of support and belonging for kids with disabilities.
