Disability Stories are everywhere — including some unexpected places — and they're important. These stories invite reflection, questions, connections, and celebration. Participate in the international conversation by sharing and exploring #DisabilityStories in the form of photos, facts, links, videos, and conversation on social media. Stories will be shared by individuals, Smithsonian museums, cultural organizations around the world, and the Kennedy Center’s Office of VSA and Accessibility. In addition to sharing stories on Twitter, participants will also publish blog posts. All participants are encouraged to use best practices for accessibility on social media.
