We here at the New Normal are very excited to say that tonight will be hosting Eustacia Cutler, Susan Nussbaum and Dr. Nancy Crown at “Understanding Difference,” a public discussion about disability and inclusion.
The event will start tonight, at 7:30 p.m., and we would love to see you there.
Eustacia Cutler is the mother of animal behaviorist and bestselling author and autism activist Temple Grandin; Susan Nussbaum is a disability rights activist, playwright and novelist and Dr. Nancy Crown is a clinical psychologist and mother of an adult on the autism spectrum who co-founded and co-chairs Congregation Rodeph Shalom’s Special Needs Committee.
We here at the New Normal: Blogging Disability, believe fervently in the power of conversation to foster a community that includes all of us.
We’ll also be “live Tweeting” the event using the hashtag #UnderDiff, so if you follow Twitter and can’t make it to the event, please join us virtually.
The evening is a joint project of the Jewish Week and the Ruderman Family Foundation, supported by UJA Federation of New York and co-sponsored by Congregation Rodeph Sholom.
Attached is a flyer with more details. I hope to see you and your friends, colleagues and family there.
