Ableism, Awareness and Activism at the Pomfret School

December 3, 2016 – Yesterday, I had the opportunity to speak to the student body at the Pomfret School in Connecticut. The  350 students are working on special projects discussing and considering strategies to support pomfret2Ableism.  I am honored to be a small part of the effort.

Owen Robinson, 13  traveled with me and received a quick tour of the school. While Owen toured the campus, I had the opportunity to visit with 10 students over dinner. The students are in their junior year. They are extremely impressive in their attitude towards education as well as remaining socially conscious. The students come from a variety of backgrounds and places of the Northeast. From Brooklyn, New York to small-town Connecticut, these students – while diverse in background – are united in awareness.

Thank you Pomfret School –  we will see you again!
