August meeting update

Dimensions of Diversity Alliance had an amazing meeting in August. Our speaker Berge P. Avesian Jr. helped us to understand the culture of the deaf & hearing impaired community with his own personal story of having hearing loss occur at 12 years old.
He educated us about the technology that is making it more manageable to accommodate those who encounter hearing loss. We also welcomed a new member Joshua Nowicki, a representative from the Holocaust Memorial Center at the meeting letting us know about their upcoming events and some of the historical significance of this beautiful center.
Mark your calendar for September 18th which is our Walk, Run, Wheel event in Novi at the Town Center.
This event commemorates the 20th anniversary of the American Disabilities Act and celebrates Triathletes In Action's effort to sponsor their 1st Triathlete in a wheel chair.
