Quote: “When I was at The Boggs Center, in order to lay the groundwork for three separate conferences in New Jersey related to different cultural groups, we researched at the beginning and found core leadership from those communities, and invited them to help teach us. Not just review something already written, but open-ended conversations about how best to engage and support people in their communities. That led to their asking for education about disability and a real sense of partnership. We met on their turf.” –Bill Gaventa, M.Div., Director, Summer Institute on Theology and Disability and Collaborative on Faith and Disability
