Quote and Song Suggestions for Wednesday and Friday Staying Connected Zoom Calls :

 

Hello Everyone,

 

Music is often what people turn to when looking for hope, inspiration, or a way to capture their most passionate feelings. Uplifting and thought -provoking Quotes can help us have renewed hope and perspective.  

 We would like to offer you an opportunity to share your song suggestions and quote of the week suggestions for the Wednesday and Friday SANYS "Staying Connected Zooms.

Here's how you can submit your suggestion(s):

Email Susan O'Hearn @ sohearn@sanys.org your music and/or quote suggestion(s) along with a brief description of why you chose the song(s) and/or quote(s). When submitting a quote, include if you would be comfortable being the person to read the quote out loud during the meeting or if you'd like a member of our SANYS team to read it out loud on your behalf, should your quote suggestion be selected for that week.  
With gratitude,

Susan

 

Self-Advocacy in Action TV Show

Did you know that over 20 years ago Chester Finn started a TV show called Self Advocacy in Action? Now, the Self Advocacy in Action TV Show is back up and running on You Tube! Alex, Engelic, Lee, Mike and the rest of the SA in Action crew would like to invite you to join in and contribute your own material.

Do you produce videos? Would you like your work to be featured on Self Advocacy in Action? Would you like to be a host on the show and interview people? Do you want to be interviewed?

If so, please contact Mike Rogers or Sophia Roberts at western@sanys.org and we’ll let you know what to do to be on the show. 

Each week we will be releasing a short video to be shared in the weekly update. This week is an interview with Mike Rogers about transportation, and we hope to have interviews by a variety of hosts on all sorts of subjects in the future like relationships, sexuality, adaptive fashion, social media, technology, disabled entrepreneurs and artists, advocacy and life.

Here’s our first video for this week: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hSxXDOwA6og&pbjreload=101
