WXXI is proud to announce that Dialogue on Disability, an annual outreach partnership with Al Sigl Community of Agencies, designed to stimulate community dialogue about the perspectives and abilities of people with physical and intellectual disabilities, will expand from a week-long initiative to a year-long one. It was always our hope that the conversation would continue beyond the campaign’s seven days and now thanks to support from the Golisano Foundation it will. Together we will offer TV and radio programming, news features, film screenings with talk backs, and other special offerings throughout the year.
WXXI will kick off this year-long initiative on Tuesday, January 14 at the Little Theatre with a special screening of “The Crash Reel” followed by a panel discussion about brain injuries. Then the week of January 20th, WXXI will present a a series of TV and radio programming clebrating the abilities of those with disabilities. Stay tuned for announcements of more special programming planned throught out the year. See program highlights below for details.
Dialogue on Disability is a partnership between WXXI and Al Sigl Community of Agencies, which is supported by the Golisano Foundation and part of Al Sigl’s Herman and Margaret Schwartz Community Series, funded by the Fred L. Emerson Foundation.
