What do you know about your neighbors, your co-workers? Your friends and family?

We asked folks in Genesee County to share their stories: to tell us who they are in their words. All of the people included in this project have a visible or invisible disability. We told them they could disclose the disability or not; they could share their it now, later, or never. It’s their story – they decide how they tell it.

This is the TDN community. These are your neighbors, co-workers, friends, and family. Have you shared your story with them?

Let us know if you want to share your story.
