Pennsylvania’s First Lady, Frances Wolf, has announced an initiative; One Lens: Sharing our Common Views, a virtual photo and storytelling exhibition that gives all Pennsylvanians the opportunity to share their COVID-19 experiences throughout the past year. This is an invitation to send photos and/or audio submissions to be shared in this virtual exhibition.
This is an opportunity for visibility and to share the important stories of people with intellectual disabilities/autism, their families, direct support professionals, nurses, respiratory therapists, and our providers, in this larger story about the impact of COVID-19 on our communities.
Photo submissions will be accepted through March 8 and audio submissions (stories) will be accepted through March 15. The final product will be shared virtually on March 19, 2021. For more information about the exhibition, how to make submissions, and participate, visit this web page.
Deputy Secretary Kristin Ahrens has asked that we share this and encourage individuals and families, providers, and all of our stakeholders to share photos and stories that reflect the unique challenges and experiences we’ve all navigated over the past year.
