OUR STORY AUDITORS
Let our Story Auditors, with lived-experience and trained in social role valorization principles, provide you feedback on stories, articles, videos, and agency communications such as newsletters, brochures, and fundraising efforts. This is the first step in ensuring that people with disabilities are portrayed with dignity and respect, with a focus on the person, not labels.
