Understanding Disability: Family and Community Stories
Thursday, March 16, 7 p.m., Library
The disability community accounts for 12 percent of the US population and almost 14 percent of the population of Oregon. All Oregonians are influenced by the disability community, whether as individuals with a disability, or as family members, friends, or allies of someone with a disability.
This is the focus of “Understanding Disability: Family and Community Stories,” a free conversation with Jill Crawford Hurt at the St. Helens Public Library sponsored by Oregon Humanities.
Hurt is a proud member of the disability community. As the second of three generations to share a hereditary neuropathy, she devotes her personal and professional life to disability advocacy. She holds a master of rehabilitation administration degree from the University of San Francisco. Her professional experience includes facilitating community advocacy and youth peer support activities and serving as director of a parent advocacy organization.
The Oregon Humanities Conversation Project offers free programs that engage community members in thoughtful, challenging conversations about ideas critical to our daily lives and our state's future.
