DAWN Announcement: It’s Our Story
National Media and History Project
“It’s Our Story” continues a decades-long effort to record the power, pride, and personal struggles of living with a disability. It's a uniquely American story and challenges our most fundamental values of freedom, autonomy, and independence.
Mission of It’s Our Story
Create an online, fully accessible database of the history of the disability community that will educate users about the disability experience and empower them to take ownership of their history and become storytellers.
There are numerous ways for you to participate in It’s Our Story landmark effort to make critical disability history public and accessible to all. No matter your availability, your location, or your skill set, there is a way for you to make an important contribution to this effort.
