All are welcome to join Quality Trust’s Family Ties of DC (FTDC) as we launch our innovative parent-to-parent matching program and host a Panel Discussion on “The Intersection of Disability and Race: Centering the Perspectives of DC Self-Advocates and Parents”. The panelists include District of Columbia residents Linda Brown, Effie Davis, Elijah Lee, and Ricardo Thornton. This lively, thought-provoking panel conversation is hosted by Andraéa N. LaVant, a former DC resident, national disability advocate, and Netflix impact producer of “Crip Camp”, which received a 2021 Oscar nomination for Documentary feature.
