Are you interested in first-hand stories of Hoosiers with disabilities and their advocates? The Indiana Disability History Project is documenting the challenges and victories of Hoosiers who’ve worked for disability rights. The project is also looking at the “everyday” lives of people with disabilities, and how those experiences have changed over the years. Through videotaped interviews, the initiative seeks to preserve first-hand memories, and promote public understanding of the contributions and barriers faced by Hoosiers with disabilities and their advocates.
There is now an Indiana Disability History Facebook page where you can share your stories and find excerpts of video interviews and other thought-provoking information from disability history. Please join us!
Indiana Disability History is a project of the Center on Aging and Community of the Indiana Institute on Disability and Community at Indiana University, sponsored by the Indiana Governor's Council for People with Disabilities and Indiana Disability Rights.
