Turn Up for Communication Rights!!!
Turn Up!!! for Communication Rights event was a great success. The weather was on our side and space worked so well for our Spellers (nonspeaking Autistics who spell to communicate), as well as their allies.
We had a full house, including the Borough President Vitto Fossella, the staff of State Senator Jessica Scarcella – Spanton, our many sponsors, our spellers and most importantly an energetic and very energizing community presence. There was a lively band Jonny Fish and the Fins and DJ Joe keeping us on our feet. When our presenters – cofounders Nick D’ Amora, Cristofer Puleo, Tejas Rao Sankar, and William Jusino made their presentation, the entire crowd was silent and reflective of their personal journey and the mission that they helped author for CrimsonRise. We hope to see again at our next events!
