Recently Jason Harris, Founder of Jason’s Connection, sat down with Susan Brownknight, Director of Development and Public Relations for LADD, Inc., an organization whose mission is to facilitate the education of adults with disabilities to realize their aspirations.
Ms. Brownknight is a tireless advocate for those with disabilities. In addition to her work at LADD, she is also Managing Director of the Cincinnati ReelAbilities Film Festival.
“There is strength in our differences and…assigning value to a person with a disability is not only the right thing to do, it really is the smart thing to do. It adds to the fabric of the community on a lot of levels.”
LADD, INC., provides a variety of programs and services for people with disabilities, from young adults just leaving high school to older adults who qualify for senior services. Their community-based services are unique in the way they teach independent living skills that will help people become self-sufficient and less dependent on others.
REELABILITIES FILM FESTIVAL is the largest festival in the country dedicated to promoting awareness and appreciation of the lives, stories, and artistic expressions of people with different disabilities.
