We have so much to be thankful for, most of all for you and for one another!
Sign Shares has celebrated birthday hugs and awards, supporting the disability community through arts and more.
Sign Shares was honored to be a part of the Coalition of Texans with Disabilities’ Cinema Touching Disability Film Festival in Austin, Texas. Sign Shares was a Director sponsor for the event.
In a recent Facbook photo album, Sign Shares’ staff Eva Storey and Michael Akinosi interact with Lizzie Velasquez. Velasquez is an international speaker and activist who is the subject of a film, A Brave Heart. The film explores how Lizzie turned a malicious viral video touting her as the “world’s ugliest woman” into a stigma-shattering victory.
The Sign Shares team also viewed the Jessica Cox film Right Footed. Cox is an advocate, pilot, and martial artist who was born without arms. The film follows her advocacy for disability rights.

On Facebook, Sign Shares’ President and CEO, Eva Storey, said, “We have more memories to create and wrap up by the end of the 2015 year. We always have you all in our hearts and minds. Love and Blue Light, the SS Family!”
