A continuation of the Community Conversation Project WRFA first launched in the Fall of 2021.
In the Fall of 2021, WRFA presented a three-part series of Community Conversations, connecting the broader Jamestown community with five its marginalized/under-served groups to increase public awareness of their challenges and also identify workable solutions to overcome these challenges. Those groups included: the local African-American Community, the Hispanic Community, LGBTQ+ Community, those affected by Chemical Dependency, as well as Generational Poverty.
On March 10, we continued the conversation by focusing specifically on the Disability Community in the greater Jamestown area. We will not only highlight the challenges they encounter within the community, but also work to identify solutions to overcome the stated challenges.
The discussion featured a panel of representatives from the Disability Community – Dodi McIntyre, Jamestown Human Rights Commission; Paul Ribaudo, The Resource Center (TRC); Pamela Robbins, TRC; and Marie Carrubba, Southwestern Center for Independent Living – and will be moderated by WRFA Public Affairs Director Julia Ciesla-Hanley.
Funding for the Community Conversation is made available by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting’s American Rescue Plan Act stabilization grant fund.
