One in six Americans has or will have a communication disability in their lifetime. So why don’t we know more about these disabilities and hear more about them?
Everyone Can Communicate, a new short film from Ability Central, features interviews with members of our board and advisory group. As people who have communication disabilities, they share unique insights into their experience of communicating in a system that is built to exclude them, addressing their fundamental rights to access that are often violated. As the only funder working exclusively to address all communication disabilities, Ability Central is proud to highlight the work being done to create awareness and action for these communities.
Everyone Can Communicate was developed for Exponent Philanthropy’s Outsized Impact Film Festival. The film will premiere at their annual conference in Minneapolis, October 10-12. To learn more about the conference, view the agenda, and register, visit exponentphilanthropy.org.
