Telling Our Stories

Telling our stories... GCDD. Everyone has a story. Read ours.GCDD’s Storytelling Project paints a picture of the complex systems of support that enable people with developmental disabilities to live their best lives.

Spanning Georgia’s 56 state senate districts, these stories feature at least one individual who resides in each district – allowing this project to become a vehicle of advocacy for Georgians living with disabilities.

The stories highlight racial disparities, socioeconomic inequities and how a situation can play out in two different circumstances – one where people are or are not supported by the system.

 

Podcast Series Hidden Voices
The GCDD Storytelling Project has created a seven-episode podcast, called Hidden Voices, spotlighting the stories of people with developmental disabilities.

The podcast explores issues that impact their lives such as Medicaid waivers, employment, housing, transportation, advocacy, adaptive technology and service animals.
