Prism Series

Centered around both the needs and success stories of those within the distinctly-abled community, the Prism Series curated by the Community Life Collaborative is intended to shed light and understanding on the issues most relevant to neurodivergent, cognitively impaired, and developmentally disabled individuals.

Our goal is to bring this series to the community annually, focusing on the ever-changing needs of our community. Sharing resources, highlighting the possible, and creating a safe space for not only discussion but also active physical participation for individuals with disabilities, their families, friends and community.

About the Prism Series

The series starts with the Oak-y Dokie 5K and Able Acorn Walk, a chip-timed race and fun walk held at the Family Life Center in Bainbridge that is accessible to all. Heading into October, the focus will turn to individual regional sessions highlighting destigmatization and awareness strategies as well as the needs of youth and adults in the distinctly-abled community. The culmination of the series is the Leaf Party, an inside-out family festival created for everyone but built entirely upon an inclusion framework.
