The Institute on Disabilities at Temple University holds an opening reception for Here: Stories from Selinsgrove Center and KenCrest Services, an exhibition presented through the ongoing project A Fierce Kind of Love: Connecting Communities through Story and Dialogue. Here is a series of photographs and audio interviews featuring 19 narrators with intellectual disabilities who live and work in Pennsylvania.

A Fierce Kind of Love is a year-long, multi-phase exploration of the stories—both large and intimate—of Pennsylvania's Intellectual Disability Rights Movement, and celebrates the struggle, activism, and fierce love that fuels the desire for dignity. The project will culminate in a new play by theater artist Suli Holum and director David Bradley.
