CAN Talks 2021

CAN Talks – October 26, 2021

Individuals with disabilities flourish when seen as people first:  people who have talent, people who are employable, people who enjoy life, and people who are no different in the areas that matter most.

Join us as five local individuals with disabilities, who are flourishing in our community, and special guest, Mandy Harvey – from America’s Got Talent – share their stories from their perspectives in order to challenge the status quo.  Think TED Talks with a twist.

People under 65 in Greenville County with a Disability: Census 2012 - 2016

Your Opportunity to Make a Difference has never been better...

People under 65 in Greenville County with a Disability: Census 2012 - 2016

Every donation, large and small affects positive change.

Within our generation, people with disabilities were locked away from society with a belief that they had nothing useful to contribute.  Although much progress has been made in the past fifty years, individuals with disabilities still struggle to be seen, heard, valued, and included.

YOU can be the difference.  Together, we can achieve our vision of a community where all individuals with disabilities flourish.

Thank you for being a champion for individuals with disabilities!
