2024 Dialogue on Disability Week

Five people seated in front of a movie screen; an ASL interpreter signs on the right

Thank you to everyone who joined us on Thursday, January 11th at The Little Theatre for ‘All You Hear Is Noise’. This compelling OneTake Documentary served as a sneak preview to the wide range of programming that was featured during this year’s Dialogue on Disability: The Herman & Margaret Schwartz Community Series, which took place January 22nd-28th. The film follows three athletes with I/DD navigating life beyond the international spotlight of the Special Olympics World Games.

The annual week-long series is  made possible through funding by the Fred L. Emerson Foundation. It is part of a year-round partnership between Al Sigl Community of Agencies, WXXI, and The Golisano Foundation called Move to Include. In 2019, the Corporation for Public Broadcasting funded the expansion of Move to Include to five additional public media stations around the nation.
