The Arizona Daily Star and ProPublica want to hear about your experiences with intellectual and developmental disabilities services. Join us for a virtual storytelling event on July 8 at 4 p.m. Pacific time to share your story and learn more about our project. We’re partnering with Detour Company Theatre, a group that works with people who have disabilities.

The event will include subtitles and a certified American Sign Language interpreter.

We’ll be on hand to field calls and questions from attendees who are interested in sharing their own stories navigating disability services. You’ll leave with tools to share your own stories, and you’ll help make sure we’re covering the issues most important to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities in Arizona.
