Mark your calendars for next year’s ReelAbilities Disabilities Film Festival which is being held March 8-14th of 2018.

This will be our third year being sponsors of ReelAbilities which we are looking forward to continuing to support this amazing film festival.

We’ve had some great experiences while being there not only as sponsors but also as press.

We managed to see amazing films that spark so much conversation and really shows how we all can relate back to film festivals that are shown there no matter what your abilities are.

NYC Disability Pride Parade 2017

Next weekend is New York City’s Disability Pride Parade which is being held July 9th and Spechless’ own Micah Folwer will be the grand Marshall of the parade which the route is from Union Square and ends at Madison Square Park. 

This will be our second time being at the Disability Pride Parade and it’s an annual event. I wouldn’t miss out at being at this event because it’s a great way to help bring to light awareness of all disabilities and the community does come together which is a great thing that more communities should also start a Disability Pride Parade since it’s also helps bring people together. 

The most important thing is bringing the community together and that’s what matters. 
There’s communities where those with disabilities do not have access to technologies and other resources that would help them to get the most for filling lives they can have with better access fit their needs and each persons needs are different. 
On another note this will be our second year in attendance at the parade. Last year they had different vendors near Madison Square Park which is a great way to learn about what resources are available in New York City as well as different activities that strive to bring people together. Last year there was also different food trucks at Madison Square Park as well.

We all grew up with SNL in our lives at some point in our lives. There’s a new exhibit in New York City that all SNL fans should check out. The Exhibit has a lot to offer.  You definitely would enjoy it. I know I did. You really get to see a ton of different props from the show along with different costumes. You can see from the photos below.
